Boxing Post-Lockdown Guidance

England Boxing can confirm all clubs are allowed to open for individual, socially distanced, non-contact training for adults and under 18s, but what is allowed for adult groups will vary depending on which local tier your venue is located in.

Club should remind themselves of the England Boxing guidelines before re-opening and make sure they meet all the criteria.

Tier 2 areas - Rutland

  • Both adults and Under-18s can train individually in an indoor gym or facility provided the club concerned follows England Boxing guidelines as this is deemed to make it a COVID-19-secure. This includes doing the risk assessment and that both individuals and the club follow the protocols / guidelines set-up before the second national lockdown, namely everyone stays 2m apart at all times, all equipment is thoroughly cleaned before and after each session and before and after each individual use, using a suitable sanitiser, hands are washed before and after a session, contact details are taken etc.
  • The numbers of people who are allowed to attend at any one time should be based on the guidance issued previously and based on the size of the gym.
  • Group exercises classes for adults (such as BoxFit) can only take place if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with (or share a support bubble with).
  • Larger group classes are permitted for indoor disability boxing, boxing for educational purposes and supervised boxing for under-18s, with the limit on those numbers still to be confirmed.
  • Contact boxing – including pad work, sparring, shows and competitions – is not permitted at this time.
  • It is important that those participating follow the governments guidelines when they travel to and from the boxing club.


Tier 3 areas - Leicestershire & Leicester
