Affiliated to Olympic Weightlifting New Zealand, 41° Weightlifting Club aims to encourage everyone to participate in and contribute to Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting in New Zealand.  The name 41° (degrees) relates to the latitude on which Petone is located.

You do not need to be registered with OWNZ to lift in a club event, see new rules for 2018 below, but if you want your lifts to be recorded and be eligible for any other event then you need to register. You do need to be OWNZ registered to train with us.

Recreational Members

OWNZ are making it compulsory for first-time athletes that do not wish to be financial members of OWNZ to complete a recreational member online registration form BEFORE they compete in OWNZ sanctioned club competitions. The form is HERE.

Please note that if they only complete the recreational member form then their results will NOT be included in our national rankings & qualifications. If this athlete wants to compete more than once, they must sign up as a financial competitive member of OWNZ.
