Knockout new boxing facility to be built

July 28, 2018 by  

Caboolture is set to host its own boxing hub.

Moreton Bay Council has announced a $320,000 investment to construct a new building that will house the Caboolture Boxing Club.

According to Cr. Adam Hain the club together with Annie and Don Tindall have produced some of the state’s top boxers during the past 30 years and the gym has become one of Queensland’s most sought after for those wishing to train. He said:

“With their success and the recent success of local boxers like Caboolture’s Rebecca Hawker they’ve now outgrown their current home underneath the rugby league training facility and it means they need a new facility.”

Work on the 165sqm building is set to begin in August and, weather permitting, be completed 14 weeks later. As part of the project, modifications will also be made to the car park.

Cr. Hain said the new facility will provide an opportunity for more local children to participate in the sport, gain boxing skills and keep fit.

Don Tindall, of Caboolture Boxing Club, said the new facility will provide a dedicated space for boxers to compete, train and exercise.

A tender for the project has just been awarded and follows several others announced recently for Caboolture’s largest recreation and sports precinct at Centenary Lakes.

Events, often advertised on flyer printing and digital formats, have proven popular at Centenary Lakes and the new boxing club is expected to attract even more attention from locals.
