A club holds an open day tomorrow to show off its spacious new building.

Wisbech Amateur Boxing Club has opened in Pinnacle House, in Nene Parade, after a month of hard work moving from its old home in Nene Quay.

The new 13,000sq ft industrial unit has a range of workout equipment, 11 punch bags, a boxing ring and table tennis tables which organisers hope will be welcomed as a community facility.

On Saturday, the club opens its doors from noon to show off the new facilities. Club members will hold sparring sessions and there will be a range of stalls.

Saphire Lee, of Wisbech ABC, said: “All ages can come along.

“We have sessions for children and are planning to run a women’s only boxing training night if there is enough interest.

“We hope the community get good use out of this.”
