The Birmingham 2022 Organising Committee will provide Games time training venues for all athletes immediately prior to and during competition. Games time training venues will be of competition standard, and in close proximity to the Commonwealth Games Village. The process for selecting the venues will begin this year and conclude in mid-2020.This will provide a further opportunity for communities in the West Midlands to play an important role in the delivery of the Games, and welcoming our Commonwealth visitors.

We expect that a number of national Commonwealth Games Associations will also look to organise their own pre-Games training camps in the UK and the Birmingham 2022 Organising Committee will help in providing details of the range of world class venues available in this country.
