|Hitchin & Letchworth Powerlifting Club was founded in 1966 by Harry Hatch and John Grover.
The Hitchin Weightlifting Club was originally part of the Hitchin Youth Trust occupying a building at the Codicote Centre, Highbury Road, Hitchin. When the Trust decided that they would sell the site we were asked to find another venue for the Club.
We moved to a new and larger building at the Letchworth Corner Sports Club, Whitethorn Lane, Letchworth in October 2001.
We changed the club name to the Hitchin and Letchworth Weightlifting Club to reflect our history, location and membership.
Members must pay a membership fee to the Letchworth Corner Sports Club as members of the Weightlifting Section. In addition the weightlifting club members pay a nominal annual club membership and then a fee on each visit to the gym.
The Weightlifting Section is represented on the Management Committee by the Chairperson and Secretary.
The Hitchin and Letchworth Weightlifting Club is an affiliated member of the British Weightlifting Association (BWLA) and we hold the Divisional (East Midlands) Championships at the gym.
You skip a workout because its too hot or cold.
The above points, however true are not meant to cause offence are and purely for lighthearted entertainment and are not the views expressed by the members of Hitchin and Letchworth weightlifting club.
