Below is a list of all current upcoming  2020 BPU and ABPU, WPC and AWPC events – keep checking back for regular updates: Please remember and be aware that w do not operate with closing dates for our qualifiers. Due to the level of demand in the past, we have ended up with massive over subscription to competitions when using a closing dat which is no good for the lifters. Therefore this federation operates on a system that we will give you time to be aware when a qualifier is going live and then the entries will close once full. It is your responsibility to keep checking on the web site and the federation Facebook page for these and we will not accept any responsibility if you miss it. All we can do is to give you the information, it is then up to you. If you miss it, all you have to do is to email us and if we can fit you in we will certainly try to. This does NOT APPLY TO THE BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS, EUROPEAN OR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.  

Please note you can get additional information about the international competitions from the World Powerlifting Congress Web site which list both the WPC and AWPC International competition: http://www.worldpowerliftingcongress.com

OR be a 2019 A/BPU British Championships 2019 class winner 

OR be a 2019 A/WPC World Championships winner 

What if I already had an entry for 2020? Those entries were permitted to be rolled over to 2021 regardless of the prior changes. The entries from 2020 were directly to Bodypower, the 2021 entries are directly to us as we are hosting the 2021 event. ALL previous 2020 British are being rolled over to British 2021 Championships. 

I qualified for the British 2020 ………… we are extending your invitation to 2021 due to the Covid 19 situation. If you received an invitation for 2020 then you will use the link below to enter the British 2021 if you had not already entered the British 2020, 

I qualified for the British 2021, where is my invitation? Due to the vast amount of administration, lost emails and people qualified all the way back in 2019, you simply need to make entry if you qualified via the link below. You will need to provide details of where you qualified which will be checked. 

THE BIGGEST POWERLIFTING COMPETITION IN BRITAIN

Over 500  competitors – one platform to give everyone the spotlight and we will be back at Bodypower in 2022 when all this Covid stuff goes away! There is huge doubt over mass events with 1000’s of people attending up until at least November this year, so we are playing it safe and bringing you a 7 day, longest and biggest ever British Nationals in the UK.

This is the highlight of the year in powerlifting terms where lifters fight for a place on the British Team to represent GB and the AWPC and WPC World Championships in the USA and Portugal,
