OK, I'm now back after my major abdominal surgery; I've started training and exercising again, and starting to lose the weight I've put on after three months of enforced do-nothingness (God, is it ever hard to start clawing back the ground you've lost!!!!)

Anyhoo, my ambition this year is to have an Interclub. Herein lies the problem: I know there are lots of them happening out there, but they don't seem to be advertised at all. Does anyone know of any Interclubs likely to be held sometime between now and end of August in the UK? I would prefer the south or southwest of England, or South Wales. I have been sending out feelers to every club that I can track down, asking them if they know of anything coming up, but does anyone here know of a suitable competition/event I could enter?

Thanks in advance!

And if anyone else out there has had to stop all exercise for months at a time, take heart, it does all come back...it's just absolutely knackering...

Interclub matches are generally sorted out by your gym, so you would need to ask them. If you don't have a gym you should join one, as you won't get matched without, as the host gym will need some independent assessment of your level etc

It is unlikely that you will see any August interclubs advertised this far in advance. We tend to find out at most about a month before they take place. If you are on Facebook, you can try to keep track of things by liking the pages of the gyms in your area as whoever holds an event normally begins by advertising on their page.

Speedy recovery and best of luck!

Thanks folks.

I know there is an interclub coming up At Some Point at a fairly close location, but don't know the date.

It's frustrating because I need to know well in advance because I work weird shifts and need a couple of months' notice (at least) to be able to make sure that I won't be working.

Apparently there are loads of interclubs on - but where!!! when!!!

loads happening in the midlands, usually k star do one pretty regularly, as does black widow. 

Just contact some gyms, usually people are helpful. Ask your own gym?

I've contacted every gym within reasonable travelling opportunities and they have either

a) not replied

b) said they don't know of any interclubs

c) have said 'Oh there's loads on' but refuse to give me any info because I am not a member of their club

Oh well. Nuts to it all. I give up.

I'll just never get to see if I can hold my own in a decent spar against someone of roughly my height and weight etc.

Curious why your coach isn't making these calls?

Storm Gym in Luton do regular interclubs. Their next interclubs are 14th May, 16th July and 15th October. 

You should join a reputable club that knows this information. If your gym knows this information, but isn't putting you forward, then there is likely good reason for it.

I train with a friend (who is a professional trainer) because I prefer one-to-one training; I do go along to a club occasionally (where again I tend to go for one-to-one training) but they only know of one club that does interclubs and no-one knows when the next one will be. They are more than happy for me to compete - I was supposed to have done so before but one I couldn't make due to other commitments and the next one I was still recovering from major surgery.

I can't attend another club except for one-off occasions due to various reasons.

 

Thanks for the info though on clubs that do hold interclubs - I have been in contact!

Hybrid in Plymouth are holding an interclub on July 16th and Chaos in Okehampton are planning one at the end of August. I don't know the exact day.
