We are all very well aware as to the benefits boxing can have over an individual’s physical and mental wellbeing. Unfortunately, competitive boxing is not a sport that can avoid person to person contact. That said, there are a number of boxing activities that can be undertaken which are consistent with the new route map moving out of lockdown, where the local environment allows.
These guidelines set out how boxing activity can be enjoyed in a way that is in line with Scottish Government advice and helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. They include measures to limit hand to shared surface contact and minimise unnecessary interactions with others.
These guidelines have been developed by Boxing Scotland for boxing activities within Scotland and were produced in conjunction with sportscotland and the Scottish Government.
The document shall remain fluid and will be updated as further phased guidance is released by the Scottish Government regarding COVID-19 and our route from lockdown.
