British Powerlifting would like to wish all its members past, present and future a very happy Festive Season and success on the platform in 2020.


Please note if you change your postal address or email address remember to inform the Membership Registrar. It's important that we have up to date contact information for all our members and if your email is wrong you won't be able to enter British championships. We are no longer sending out physical membership cards, these are now sent by email as PDFs. Once an application has been approved an email is automatically sent giving your membership number with the membership card as an attachment. If you don't receive your card within a week of applying please first of all check your junk mail and if you can't find it please inform the Membership Registrar.


All international referees are reminded that they need to re-register for the next four years via the IPF web-site under the Federation tab - Referees Registrar. This is essential if you wish to retain your international licence.

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2017 we conducted some 140 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
