Following the postponement of the British Weightlifting Championships on 26-28 June due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, BWL are now proposing to move this competition to November 2020 and combine it with the scheduled England Weightlifting Championships to become the British and English Championships 2020.

Please note that this is provisional and is subject to the ever changing situation presented by COVID-19.

British and English Championships - 2020

We hope the new British and English Championships 2020 will take place across 3 days; Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November at Stantonbury Campus, Milton Keynes.

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

This competition will run as a single event, if lifters have qualified for both events they will compete once (with a maximum 6 lifts) with their results applying in both competitions at no extra cost.

The competition will include Senior, Masters and Para Powerlifting competitions.


In light of the limited number of opportunities in 2020 to qualify for this competition, BWL are currently reviewing the qualification window and criteria and will publish an update on this over the coming weeks.


BWL are aware of the financial impact COVID-19 is having on our members. In a change to our TCRR regulations, we will only be charging one entry fee, regardless of whether people qualify for the English, British or both competitions.

Entry dates and fee’s for this competition will be published over the coming weeks.

Para Powerlifting Championships

There are currently no qualification totals in place for Para Powerlifting at the British or English Championships.  To enter lifters must ensure they have completed and submitted the following documents to BWL:
