British Weight Lifting is delighted to bring you further details for its 2022 flagship competition, the British Championships which will take place between 29 – 30 January.

British Championships 2022

Join us as we celebrate a return to weightlifting and para powerlifting competitions after the COVID-19 pandemic. Cheer on lifters as they go head-to-head for the British Championship titles and celebrate the sport at its dramatic and breath-taking best.

Following a fantastic summer of sport for weightlifting and para powerlifting, hundreds of people are expected to turn out to enjoy the annual British Weight Lifting Championships at its new home - Derby Arena. Opening in 2015, the arena is a modern venue, with plenty of space to host British Weight Lifting. Located just off the M1 it is easily accessible for all our lifters and spectators.

The event will feature three different competitions to create an unforgettable weekend of strength and power:

  • The British Weight Lifting Senior Championships
  • The British Weight Lifting Masters Championships
  • The British Weight Lifting Para Powerlifting Championships

The Championships will act as a key qualifying competition for Home Nation weightlifters wanting to compete at the Commonwealth Games in July 2022. Taking place on home soil in Birmingham, the 2022 Games will deliver the largest fully integrated para-sport programme for any Commonwealth Games. This makes it more attractive than ever for Home Nations athletes to want to secure a place on the platform.
