Henry Wharton's gym opens at last

First published in Sport

AT LAST – Henry’s Gym, York’s biggest boxing gym run by ring king Henry Wharton, opens on Monday.

Remedial sound-proofing work which delayed the opening has now been completed and so doors will swing apart for business next week.

Said the former undefeated European, British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion, “We are all raring to go. It’s done.”

The 10,000 sq ft gym on the first floor of the former Regent cinema in York Road in Acomb, holds its first sessions at 5.30pm to 6.30pm for juniors – aged between seven and 12 – and seniors from 7pm to 8.15pm.
