Professional boxer Matt Brierley was on hand to declare Manton ABA open last week.
The Retford Road club opened under coaches Denise Marsh, with a helping hand from A1 Housing and and the Bassetlaw Association of Tenants and Residents Association.
Marsh told the Guardian: “In the short time we have been open the gym has been very busy with girls and boys coming through the door.”
“We would like to thank A1 housing and the BATRA for giving us £1,676 for equipment towards the gym which is very much appreciated.”
“And a big thanks to Matty Brierly for opening the gym following his win in his fifth professional fight – the kids really enjoyed him coming down and showing them some boxing moves.”
