Welcome to the official site for the Left-Handers Club, and the 12th annual celebration of left-handers superiority!! All year round, we fit in with home and office layouts designed for right-handers’ comfort – put up with doors, cookers, sinks, computer mice, keyboards and desks that are efficient for right-handers to work at, and hundreds of times every day we contort ourselves using back-to-front tools and gadgets that make us look clumsy and awkward in our efforts to make them to work…
But NOT TODAY! Because on this special day, it
is your chance to GET YOUR OWN BACK on your right-handed friends colleagues and
family, by designating your personal space as a LEFTY ZONE where everything must
be done left-handed! Download our unique Lefty Zone posters for prominent display,
plus any others from our selection of FREE LEFT-HANDERS
DAY POSTERS, re-arrange the room for your convenience, and settle down to
enjoy this site, totally dedicated to YOU!

- To raise awareness of left-handedness and the challenges caused
by living in such a right-handed world.
- Educate designers and manufacturers to accommodate left-handers’
comfort and safety in new product and building design
- Celebrate the strengths and advantages left-handers possess,
and dispel many of the superstitions and fiction that have surrounded left-handedness
in many cultures for hundreds of years, and which still create prejudice today.
- Provide the greatest possible range of tools and equipment specifically
designed for left-handers to use – making everyday tasks easier than left-handers
have ever experienced, and making a positive difference to their lives.
- Promote research into various aspects of left-handedness. This
year we publish the results of our 1-year Lifestyle Survey, in which thousands
of our members took part to compile a picture of the jobs, activities and hobbies
that left-handers tend to choose. Click here
