The British Age Group Championships originally scheduled for 17-18 October will now take place virtually. This event will also incorporate the England Age Groups Championships which was postponed earlier this year in March.

British and English Age Group Championships

Combining the British and English Age Group Championships will mean that lifters will still have the opportunity to compete for both British titles and English Age Group titles in 2020.

This competition will run as a single event, if lifters have qualified for both events they will compete once with their results applying in both competitions at no extra cost.

The competition will include age groups from Under 10 to Under 23 for both English and British elements.


Lifters will pay a single-entry fee to take part in this competition, BWL will assess if they are eligible to compete in both the England and British competitions and process the results accordingly.  The entry fee will be £15.00

As with the Virtual Open Series competitions, results from the virtual British and England Age Group Championships will be recognised for qualification and ranking to future events.  However, the results will not be eligible for new records.


Qualification for this competition will follow the regulations outlined in the BWL TCRR with the following exceptions:

  • All qualification totals reduced by 2%
  • The start of the qualification period backdated to 01 January 2019
  • The end of the qualification period will be Sunday 04 October 2020

Medallists for this competition will receive their medals in the post, with results being made available within 3 working days of the final submission date.

Entry to this competition will be through the same system as Lockdown Lift Off and the Virtual Open Series.  Submissions will begin at 0900 on Monday 12 October and close at 1800 on Sunday 18 October.  Late submissions will not be accepted.  Refunds will not be issued for submissions that are rejected.

A full guide to submissions will be published separately to assist with competition entries.
