Boxing is Ireland’s most successful Olympic sport. In UCD the Boxing Club actively encourages students, big and small, male and female to participate in the sport. New and experienced boxers are encouraged to participate in intervarsity competitions and other organised tournaments. Highlight of the year is the Colours fixture, a fierce battle against rivals Trinity.
Activities include bag punching, pad work, shadow boxing, as well as sparring. All training sessions take place on campus and sparring sessions are held under the watchful eye of expert instructors. The club provides all major equipment required.
