THE newly developed Wonthaggi Boxing Club home base is really starting to take shape, with local tradesmen working around the clock to get the facility complete.
Recently installed was the newly made heavy bag frame to house all the punching bags, speed balls and floor to ceiling ball frames ready for the new gear to arrive.
The club would like to thank Kevin Donohue for all his hard work in making the frame work and the many helpers who put it together.
The club was lucky enough to receive a Bass Coast Shire Community Grant recently which has been put towards all new boxing equipment and it’s just a matter of time before it arrives and is set up.
President Taryn DeMunk has been thrilled with the support of the community through the stages of the redevelopment.
“It’s fantastic the interest we have received already. Some local sports clubs, a local school and some work groups have all expressed interest in classes and training once we are open.
“It’s honestly a bit overwhelming, the response we have had from the community.
“The Wonthaggi Youth Hub will be moving in shortly and organising their area at the back of the building with disability access being drawn up and built in the very near future.”
The club is only a few weeks away from opening the doors and allowing people to come and check out what the newly renovated building has to offer, so keep an eye out on the Facebook page for the start date.
“All of this couldn’t have been achieved without the help of some amazing volunteers and local tradesmen who donated time and resources and the club would again like to thank all of them for getting the building to this point.
“Also the Bass Coast Shire Council for all their contributions and getting the club into the building,” president DeMunk added.
