Where to learn weightlifting in Cape Town

Where can I learn weightlifting in Cape Town? That’s a question that pops up a fair bit in my inbox. Well, here you go! I’ve compiled a list of active weightlifting clubs in and around Cape Town for you, including as much information as I can. I’ll also add any gyms that have quality barbells, bumper plates and platforms, that allow for unsupervised weightlifting training. I doubt they exist, but if you find them, do tell me and I will visit them to verify. Can’t say fairer than that!
