POWERLIFTING COMPETITION

18th July 2021


Our annual Powerlifting Competition, perfect for first timers wanting some competition experience or seasoned athletes looking to break personal bests. We make our competitions 'lifter focussed' ensuring that you, as the lifter, get the attention you deserve when you step on that platform!

This comp will be available for both male and female competitors, with the following weight categories:

That’s a potential 16 awards being awarded at the end of the day!

These are huge competitions with plenty of spectators making noise to support each and every lifter.

No singlets are required, however, if you choose to wear one you absolutely can do!

The competition will be fast paced and supportive.

The competition will be FULL when we reach 40 entries.

We are looking at an 8am-9.00am weigh in on the day, with the first flight lifting off at 10am

Depending on how many people enter effects how many flights there will be, alongside how many people there will be in each flight.

It is £25 per entry.

We have started a reserves list in-case anybody can not make the competition. If you would like to be added to the reserves list please contact us via social media, through our website or by email: [email protected]
