More girls in the ring!

August 8th, 2006     by Melinda Mattos     Comments

I just heard some exciting news that pertains to one of the boxing gyms mentioned in our current cover story:

The Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club will be taking over the famous Sully’s Boxing Gym as of September 2006… to become the first ALL WOMEN’S BOXING CLUB in Canada! We are expanding our current classes and boxing camps to include courses such as coaching, mentoring and fitness programs. The Newsgirls Club has proudly been serving the lgbtt communities since 1996 and wants to grow to involve many more communities, reach out to at-risk youth, and partner with the international women’s boxing community such as the South Calcutta Physical Culture Association in India. Be a part of herstory/history making! Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, the first one of its kind in Canada, is asking for your financial support to help us kickstart our dream gym. For more information, to make a donation and to check out our WISH LIST, visit

There’s also a fundraising event coming up this Friday night at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, during which they promise to turn the store into “a word-friendly club with lots of ringside action you won’t want to miss!”
