The specialist boxing gym is situated at Wood Farm, Deopham Road and the newly-extended facility will now be one of the largest of its kind in Norfolk.

The gym will be open for all members of the public to take a look around the premises and the running track and also see some of the members in action.

The club is open to everyone from aged eight and over and runs a range of classes to suit all needs.

Coaches will be available on the day and be pleased to talk through specific needs for potential members or simply show what is available.
