Monkstown (Dublin) Boxing Club are delighted to invite you to Europe’s largest Schoolboys/girls, Juniors, Under 18’s & 19’s Boxing Tournament. Their 4th Annual “Monkstown International Box Cup 2016 “supported by IABA (Irish Amateur Boxing Association), Failte Ireland, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, and Globalmedics.com. 

Their will be 920 boxers from 156 different boxing clubs, from 10 different Countries arriving for the Monkstown International Box Cup 2016. Registration for the schoolboys, girls, youth, under 18s & under 19s tournament has gone through to roof. The tournament takes place in the Holy Child Community School Sports Complex in Sallynoggin from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July.

One of the tournament organisers JP Kinsella has said months of planning has gone into this event "the tournament committee sat down last September and worked out the tournament dates/schedules and other fundamentals, in November we then sent out the invitations to every club that has attended before - but its strange as lots of other clubs that hadn't attended before started to get in contact. Speaking to those clubs how they found out about the Monkstown Box Cup was through word of mouth around various International Tournaments around Europe. The word was how successful previous tournaments had been & how high the standard of boxing has been. Its like a European Championship for clubs. The numbers are so high now its the Biggest Schoolboy, girl & Youth Boxing Tournament in Europe. Its an amazing achievement, but its not without hard work. Our Committee of volunteers is so hard working, we have set up 2 separate committees in the process (Fundraising  Committee & Parents Committee which looks after meals etc for all the boxers). Its a massive undertaking from the club, but we absolutely love every bit of it, and we are well prepared and cant wait for the 3rd of July to start"

Most Hotels around the Dun Laoghaire & Bray are completely booked out - so be expecting to see plenty of Boys & Girls in their Club Boxing Tracksuits around Dun Laoghaire and surrounding areas on the first weekend in July.
