Upcoming Competitions

Please READ the Covid page on the web site for new protocols in running our competitions

 
 

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS PAGE!

Below is a list of all current upcoming  2021 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

How to qualify for what: (this is the NORMAL route, we have had to implement a different route due to the Covid 19 situation – please see below) 

NORMAL ROUTE 

British Championships BPU and ABPU – There are 2 ways. 1) you must compete in a qualifiers for that same years national championships and hit the qualifying total which is ON THIS WEBS SITE 2) Be the winner of the British Championships or World Champion from the previous year and defend your title. 

European Championships WPC and AWPC – there are 3 ways 1) you must compete in a qualifiers for that same years European championships and hit the qualifying total which is ON THIS WEBS SITE 2) Be the winner of he European Championships  from the previous year and defend your title. 3) Be a reigning World Champion from 2019 and this gives you the right to compete, for the year, where you want. You do NOT qualify for the British Championships by winning the Europeans. 

World Championships WPC and AWPC: There are 2 ways ONLY. 1) Be invited by coming top 2 in your class at the British Championships BPU and ABPU. By being the reigning world champion and defending your title. That is IT! No exception – No “I won the British in 1853, do I get an invite to the Europeans” – The above are your only avenues!  

COVID 19 ROUTE UNTIL OTHERWISE ADVISED: 

Everyone with an invitation for the 2020 British and European Championships 2020 will have this extended to 2021 British Championships. This includes 2019 WPC and AWPC World Champions and those defending their 2019 British and European Titles IE 1st place.

If you have to leave early then you need to be aware what position you came. Please speak to us on a break and we will give you our medal – if you ask us what position you came before the end of the competition during a flight, we would have to stop the entire competition to look at your flight and see your placing which I am am sure you wouldnt want anyone else doing to you.

Ultraflex is one of the most popular qualifiers of the year and sells out very fast. It’s easy to see why when you step into the northern Mecca of bodybuilding. Machines you’ve never seen, spacious well-equipped powerlifting area, calibrated plates, competitors from International top powerlifters to IFBB pro bodybuilders. This gym has it all and you can feel it in the atmosphere.
Owned by inimitable Polish Powerhouse and IFBB Pro Kuba Cielen, this is the place to get strong and to show your strength. Every year we have an intense competition that gathers some of the sports big hitters under the same roof. If you want in, do your entry as soon as they open!
