POWERLIFTING EXCELLENCE

Welcome to the official website of British Powerlifting

British Powerlifting is the new face of the GB Powerlifting Federation, which was formed out of the powerlifting section of the British Weightlifters Association (BWLA), the original governing body of powerlifting in the UK since the inception of the sport. BWLA (then BAWLA) was a founder member of the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) in 1973 and of the European Powerlifting Federation (EPF) the following year. As the UK's IPF affiliate, British Powerlifting can trace its origins back to the earliest days of powerlifting. All British Powerlifting titles and records can be traced back to the beginning of powerlifting.

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2015 we carried out in excess of 80 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
