Dear Sir or Madam,

I’m writing to you, as a certified French boxing trainer, to request some information about the London Savate Open 2015 which will be held on July 4.

I would like to register Sub-junior and Cadet Boxers for this competition. They are those who have their French boxing licence affiliated to the French Savate Federation as well as sufficient technical level to pretend to it.

I wonder whether it is possible.

If yes, in which case can they do this? What are the conditions for their entry?

I will be grateful for any help you can provide.

I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Philippe Diez

President of the Gironde French Boxing Committee, Aquitaine, France.
