Virtual England Championship Results


This competition is now closed.

The England Championships will run as a virtual competition, using the same system as the BWL Winter Open and the British Open Series.  The competition will be open to all BWL members with a postal address in England. 

Classed as a Tier 2 event the results from the competition can be used for rankings and qualification to future national events, and the winners of each age group and category will be crowned ‘2021 England Championships Champion’.


  • In a change from previous national level events there are no qualification requirements for the England Championships.
  • You need to be a current member of British Weight Lifting with a postal address in England (determined by your membership profile).
  • There is no cap on entry numbers.
  • Entries will be processed through the virtual competition hub.
  • Entries will cost £15.00.
  • To enter you will need to film yourself making three attempts at the snatch and clean & jerk and upload them to the competition webpage. We encourage lifters to ensure they use all three attempts to avoid missing out on a total due to a ‘no-lift’ for a single upload. 
  • Please make sure that your competition entries are timestamped between midday on Monday 8 February and midday Monday 15 February.
  • Please note that as a Tier 2 competition, singlets must be worn. A tight t-shirt and leggings may be worn underneath. 
  • The Virtual England Championships webpage has a full guide to your video submission including weigh in, camera position and equipment. Please take the time to watch these videos to ensure your entry meets the requirements.

Follow these how-to videos to ensure your entry meets the necessary requirements for virtual competitions: 

Please note the time between your lifts should follow the normal competition timings, which means 2 minutes between lifts as you'll be making consecutive attempts.

However, we are making an allowance for the fact you also have to load your own bar so will allow a reasonable amount of extra time between attempts.
