What is the Pythian Club? The Pythian Club ‘TPC’ is a community-based youth movement, working initially in Basford, a multicultural area of Nottingham. TPC focuses their core projects on boxing, football and music. TPC was set up in the interest of the community, specialising in programmes such as personal and social development for young people aged 10-19 from local deprived communities. TPC works alongside Youth Offending (YOT), and other partners aiming to end gang and youth violence by engaging with ‘hard to reach’ young people, this is achieved by providing support, care and counselling.

TPC also aims to provide the opportunity for personal development through the provision of programs, which enhance; life skills, self-image and vocational motivation. The Pythian Centre provides a safe, caring and supportive environment with inclusive access to community members, whilst promoting crosscultural understanding, instilling self-belief, and offering opportunities to inspire change and positivity through empowering these young people to achieve.

Young Leaders take over The Old Market Square This is what the young leaders can accomplish. For example, these photos are of some of our young leaders taking part in boxing and football assault courses in the heart of Nottingham which is the Old Market Square. This day was a great turn out, around 50-60 new young people started their journey with The Pythian Club on that day and are still linked to the club today.

Young Leaders who have progressed Celine Lambley at the age of 21, is one of the older TPC members. Celine originally joined the club experiencing emotional issues from her childhood, often impacting upon her emotional wellbeing as she reached adulthood. Since joining TPC, the coaches have helped to support Celine through her personal issues, leading to her excelling in her interest of music. Her talent stood out to young leaders at The Pythian Club, particularly on the key board. Celine now regularly visits to offer the younger members keyboard tutoring, hoping for them to excel and build on self-confidence in the same way as she did when first joining TPC. Below is a link of Celine supporting other atendees on the keyboard through what she has learnt from TPC coaches, becoming a positive and outstanding role model for the younger music academy attendees.

Sam Varley, aged 26 plays a big part at The Pythian Club. As a professional coach, a young leader and also motivator to younger members of the club, Sam also helps support the club behind the scenes. Since joining in 2016, he has become a positive community supporter, coaching young TPC boxers in sessions and helping TPC gain access to exclusive sporting events so that our young people can experience new things. He is also a successful TV presenter, presenting at events all over the world. As a more advantaged leader, Sam is able to show our youths the result of positive inputs, giving them advice on how to progress in life, drawing on his own personal experiences growing up. Many younger members of the club trust Sam as their role model, and countless more are motivated by his many successes, particularly from his work outside the club as ‘Mr International’ there is a link below to find out more about what he does. Along with a link, showing Sam’s skills, and how he leads the young people with his professional experience in Boxing.

Mario Camatome, aged 21 attended TPC’s young leaders academy, showing an interest in the football programme. Like other young leaders, Mario excelled in working towards personal training courses and coaching badges, which Mario grasped with both hands. The football program having two strands to it; Diversionary and Targeted. The diversionary strand focuses on drawing young people away from partaking in crime and antisocial behaviour, whilst the targeted strand focuses on young people who are referred to TPC by external organisations, including Lifeline and the Youth Offending Team. TPC focuses on each member as an individual, working with them to specifically improve their own lives and aiming to have a positive impact on their own futures. Helping each member to gain selfconfidence is designed to ensure they feel more comfortable around new people, and oputting them around the RIGHT people. Below you can watch The Pythian FC in action, successfully winning a league game 5-1 with Mario scoring a goal, showing just what can happen when you apply yourself.

Young Leaders who have progressed Rob Shore aged 32 is another young person who has succeeded through The Pythian Club and many younger members of the club will look up to Jack as a positive role model and leader. Jack has been supported and mentored by the club for around 2 years and has improved significantly since we first met him. Jacks motivation and support to this club is astonishing and since he was first introduced to the club his confidence has improved significantly and he has made many new trustworthy friendships. Jack is also a regular attendee of the sports academy and has recently got his first professional job at his local McDonald’s. This portrays that Jacks motivation has reflected positively on his lifestyle outside of the club as he has been successful and independently getting his hands on his first professional job, to distract Jack from any negative distractions outside of The Pythian Club and employment. Below is a link of a successful session that around 20 young people participated in including Jack, however Jack took on the role as a leader during this session helping the young people to develop there skills in the session. Jack also arrived early in order to help us set up and also left after all the other young people in order to help close down the session and pack up.


Oliver Griffiths, aged 17 has been linked to The Pythian Club for a couple of years now. Since joining The Pythian Club Oliver’s self confidence has improved and he is now able to confidentially participate in programmes of his interest, such as boxing. Oliver also feels able to help assist younger people during our programmes and help them develop there skills just like he has through the club. As one of our young leaders at the club Oliver regularly makes time for the Pythian Club, keeping key dates and times spare to help assist the more advanced coaches at the club, giving the young people more opportunities throughout the sessions. Please see the links below of Oliver participating in our boxing programmes. We believe that all our programmes provide a safe, caring and supportive environment for inclusive access to community members like Oliver, whilst promoting a cross-cultural understanding, self-belief and opportunities to inspire change and positivity through empowering young people to achieve.


Young Leaders who have progressed Jack Kemp is an 18 year old young man who joined The Pythian Club with an interest in boxing, wanting to build on his self confidence. Throughout Jacks childhood he was connected to local social services, experiencing allot of negativity. Through making positive decisions rather than reacting to negative anti-social behaviour, Jack is progressing as a young man. Below is a video link of Jack putting in 100% effort in one of TPC’s boxing sessions.

Shannon Kemp is a regular attendee at The Pythian club who is newly qualified She is a 16 year old young leader at the club, and became interested in the club’s goal to improve the quality of life for people like herself. Members like Shannon leave the clubs sessions with good intentions, as the club allows her to have some private time out, distracting her from outside issues or negative influences. Below is a link showing Shannon working with one of the coaches, in a weekly boxing session.

Aged 13 Callum Ryan is one of The Pythian Clubs youngest young leaders. Since the club was founded Callum has excelled through the club like no other. His motivation & attendance has been phenomenal, Callum shows so much positivity at such a young age, and this has showed through his attendance in not missing a single session at the St Ann’s Academy. Callum’s consideration for his local community is rare, he aims to be a positive role model for others and be involved in positive activities with the help and support from other young leaders. Callum participated in the multisports programme which included football, panna skills, basketball, boxing, dodgeball and cricket where over 50 other young people attended. The young leaders who participated in this Pythian’s New Basford Academy gained confidence, effective communication skills and tangible accreditations that will allow them to feel assured in their newfound abilities. This proved a success throughout the multisport’s week with Callum also finding a pathway into coaching. The link below shows the young leaders participating in activities during the multisports week.

The Pythian White Papers The Pythian Club has a University White Paper because of our success in our Leadership program. In 2015 Sport Nottinghamshire received project funding from Sport England to test new ways of ‘Engaging a more diverse workforce’. The project, ‘A person like me’ began in late 2015, and due to it’s success was extended into July of 2017! This evaluation was commissioned in May 2017, and the report focuses on; the work developed, the early outcomes for participants, and also highlights the lessons learnt. It also identifies a unified approach, together with a list of ‘readiness factors’ for partnership working. The project has worked with organisations in three areas of Nottinghamshire (City of Nottingham, Ashfield and Mansfield) – areas chosen due to their high levels of socio-economic deprivation and low levels of physical activity.
