New premises and good news for Pembrokeshire Powerlifters

Trophy winners

The Pembrokeshire Powerlifting Club, in its continued search for the space necessary to accommodate the equipment needed for its growing number of participants has moved to a new facility in Cresselly.


Under the leadership of Aaron Hosking it is now a revamped and refreshed club due to all the hard work from the team.


Aaron Hoskins and competitorsIt now has a team of ten international lifters who combined have over 60+ world, European and British records and eight of their lifters have been picked to take part in the British Powerlifting Championships which will be held at Birmingham NEC on May 16th, where 1000+ lifters will be battling it out for a place on the podium and to be crowned British champion.


120,000 people are expected to go through the doors over the three day period and it continues to grow year on year.


Huge honour for Aaron and Andrew


And to top that off Aaron Hosking and Andrew Murphy have been selected to take part in the Irish Pro Invitational, powerlifting's prestigious event, where only 15 of the best lifters from around the world will go head to head to battle it out for over £12k pounds in cash prizes.


To get an invitation is an honour in itself, but to have two lifters from the club in amongst 15 of the best lifters from around the world is a remarkable feat and shows the standard achieved.


“But,” Aaron told us, “we are keen to welcome newcomers of almost any age because they will be the life-blood any sports club needs and will be the next generation to keep the Pembrokeshire Powerlifting Club at the fore of the sport in Wales!”
