The Commonwealth Games team draw has been launched

The team draw is open to the communities of Birmingham, Black Country, Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, Hereford and Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.

We have designed the application process to be as inclusive as possible to reflect the diversity of the West Midlands, with guidance available in 15 languages, while we also accept video applications.

Commonwealth Games Minister Nigel Huddleston hoped as many organizations as possible would apply for the team.

“It’s great to think that the equipment used to set Commonwealth Games personal bests and records will soon be used in community centers and schools across the West Midlands,” he said.

“I would encourage all eligible organizations to apply – you can take a piece of Commonwealth Games history home with you and inspire your community to fall in love with a new sport.”

In addition, some of the Games’ high-performance equipment, such as the temporary performance dock floor that created the netball and 3×3 basketball courts, as well as the boxing ring and high-performance judo mats, they are being distributed among national sports bodies.

This means that, along with the separate community gift, these sports bodies will be able to re-use some of their high-performance equipment in communities that can benefit most.

A full catalog of equipment for the community draw will be available on our website for groups and clubs to view and request.
