Armley Leisure Centre have teamed up with Armley pro boxer Josh Wisher to offer local youngsters a chance to learn a bit about boxing from one of Yorkshire’s rising boxing prospects.
Wisher is organising a two-hour taster session at the centre on Carr Crofts, Armley, and youngsters aged between 12 and 16 are encouraged to turn up between 1pm to 3pm on Thursday 31 August 2023 for as much of the session as they wish. There is no charge.
“I’m delighted to have been given this opportunity to share some basic boxing technique with more young people from our local area,” said Wisher, 25, whose gym The Ministry of Boxing on Moorfield Road. is about to celebrate its first birthday. ”Hopefully quite a few will come along and give it a go.”
Further information can be obtained through the Leisure Centre’s Facebook page or by calling 0113 376 0340.
The event is funded by Leeds City Council’s inner west community committee.
