White collar boxing sign up weekend
It's sign up weekend for those brave enough to take part in the West Berks White Collar Boxing event.
White collar boxing has its beginnings at Gleason's Gym in New York City. Gym owner Bruce Silverglade began organising informal fights between the white-collar workers of his clientele in the late 1980s, which later developed into regular monthly events. After developing into a regular monthly event, the sport came to prominence in the mid-1990s.
Participants will get eight weeks of training ahead of the fundraising event, which will take place in October at the Northcroft Leisure Centre.
Anyone interested in signing up should head down to Document House on Sunday from 6pm to find out a bit more about what’s involved and to secure a place on the training camp
