About Joe Hand Boxing Gym & Computer Lab

Opened in 1995 by Joe Hand Promotions, the Joe Hand Boxing Gym has been a community landmark for years. Joe Hand, Sr., a retired Philadelphia police officer, saw the gym as a safe place for Philly's children and young adults to come and hone their skills in boxing or spend time learning computer skills.

The Joe Hand Boxing Gym offers regulation boxing rings, brand new equipment, and a modern computer center where children from the community can participate in the education process, whether or not they're interested in learning how to box.

In 2002, the Joe Hand Boxing Gym was honored with the prestigious Philadelphia Sports Congress Community Service Award.
