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

You do have to be registered with OWNZ to lift in a club event, see the rules introduced in 2018 below. You also need to be OWNZ registered to train with us.
