Boxing - Paddy Brennan Boxing Academy & Fitness Centre (Tenbury ABC) is fully Affiliated to AIBA

The Paddy Brennan Boxing Academy & Fitness Centre was founded by Martin (Paddy) Brennan, an experienced and qualified head coach.

Paddy has a lifetime of experience in the world of boxing, as a former Amateur International and Professional Boxer.


We believe that the well-being and welfare of our members should come first and have an excellent team of professional coaches, volunteers & medical staff supporting the centre, including a  Registered Physiotherapist and Emmett Practitioner who is also the Child Welfare Officer.


"Boxing is the ultimate challenge. There's nothing that can compare to testing yourself the way you do every time youstep in the ring."
