(NOV 19) England will be represented at the Women’s Amateur Boxing World Championships for the first time this November. The team led by Amanda Groarke headed off for Ningbo in China on the 19th November and the tournament will commence on 22nd November until 29th November. 45 nations and 237 competitors will take part in the World Championships. Ningbo City, a seaport with population of 2.1 million is situated in North Eastern Zhejiang Province and has friendship partnerships with some European cities including Nottingham.

This is a momentous time for Women’s Boxing in England and internationally. The Amateur International Boxing Association recently submitted their proposal to include events for women in the Olympic Games to the International Olympic Committee. A decision will be made towards the end of 2009 so this represents an ideal opportunity for contestants to promote women’s boxing.
