Northern Powerhouse is the first women-led boxing club in the UK and our priority is to provide women and girls with opportunities to become involved in boxing either as an amateur sport and/or to improve their physical and mental wellbeing by being able to train in a safe and supportive environment free from gender stereotyping and expectations. We are located in an area with limited access in organised indoor sports and we provide a community base for women, men, boys and girls. Our members are aged between 7 and 77, coming from all social backgrounds, ethnicities and genders.
