About the project
Adlington Barbell Club is looking to expand its impact on the community through the development of the weightlifting activity it offers. We want to further expand the scope of people we bring into weightlifting through the purchase of more equipment, to allow us to offer more to youth and women interested in getting involved in weightlifting.
The club was established back in 1957 and has a rich heritage in both weightlifting and powerlifting. In recent times we have experienced a surge in interest and have struggled to meet the needs of new members due to lack of equipment.
Currently we have a small team of weightlifters ranging in age from 8 to 48, both male and female. We are looking to expand this with specialist equipment to cater for all ages.
All session at Adlington are run by British Weightlifting affiliated coaches.
