Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games
Sportspeople based at the University of Bath across a wide variety of sports are aiming to compete in front of a home crowd as Birmingham hosts the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
An impressive 44 medals were won by athletes training at the Team Bath Sports Training Village during the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games in athletics, judo, netball, swimming, triathlon and weightlifting among others.
The 2022 Games will take place at venues across the West Midlands from July 28 to August 8. We will update this page with news, information and team selections during the build-up.
