England Weight Lifting Competitions Postponed due to COVID-19

Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation we are sorry to announce that England Weight Lifting competitions have been postponed.

The team will be working hard over the coming days and week to contact affected lifters and spectators via email. All entry and spectator costs will be refunded (minus any transaction fees incurred via EventBrite or Sport80 which we are unable to recover). 

We will be assessing the impact of these postponed events on qualification for future competitions and will issue an update over the coming month.

It is up to the discretion of individual clubs whether they choose to refund cancelled or postponed Tier three competitions that were due to run.  Health and Safety is of the biggest priority and the clubs that were due to run competitions need to follow government guidance during this unprecedented time. England Weight Lifting will not recognise any competitions that take place under the current new rules. For any clubs who need help postponing their competition please contact competitions@britishweightlifting.org

England Weight Lifting will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow guidance from the Government, DCMS, Public Health England, Sport & Recreation Alliance, UK Sport and Sport England.
