Abandoned clubhouse ideal for IWCA AC and BBL Boxing Club
October 22, 2012
The IWCA Athletics Club and Blackbird Leys Boxing Club’s bid for the use of an abandoned clubhouse and playing fields adjacent to the Blackbird Leys estate, believed to be owned by Magdalen College Boys School, continues to hit the headlines with other local sports clubs contacting the Oxford Mail to lend their support.
The IWCA AC made the local press once again this week, calling for an abandoned clubhouse and playing fields to be made available as a training venue to both our club and the Blackbird Leys Boxing Club.
We have as a result made contact with the owners of these facillities and we are now waiting for a reply to our suggestion that we take over the run down building and organise the repairs and general maintenance in exchange for a long term lease at a reasonable rate.
