Olympic Weightlifting Club

Edinburgh University Olympic Weightlifting Club welcomes all ability levels. From preparing for competition to simply getting stronger, we're here to help you reach your goals.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, our operations for the year may be different. Please follow our Facebook or Instagram for the most up-to-date information about all our activities. 

Olympic Weightlifting is an exciting and challenging sport that relies on technique every bit as it does strength. With multiple training sessions every week, top quality facilities and coaching, Edinburgh University Olympic Weightlifting Club (EUOWC) is the perfect place to learn Olympic Weightlifting.

Whether aiming to win medals, to gain experience or simply to have fun, EUOWC encourages all members to participate in competitions throughout the year. We welcome lifters of any experience ranging from absolute beginners to competitors. 

EUOWC has quickly become the largest university weightlifting club in Scotland. Starting, a few years ago, as a few guys lifting in a room, EUOWC has quickly grown into a diverse, welcoming club of all levels and ability and now boasts a significant proportion of female athletes.
