Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Equipment Giveaway!

Sport England has teamed up with the Birmingham 2022 organisers and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to give away more than 16,000 sports items used at the Commonwealth Games.

The opportunity is open to organisations, including bowls clubs, who provide inclusive and accessible sports, physical activity and wellbeing activities in communities in the West Midlands (Birmingham, Black Country, Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, Hereford and Worcestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire).

The organisations will be encouraging participation and cohesion through sport, while promoting the benefits of physical health and wellbeing for their community. This complements Birmingham 2022โ€™s pledge to deliver an inclusive, accessible and sustainable Games.

In addition to bowls-specific equipment such as mats, jacks, scorecard holders and umpire kits, there’s also a range of consumable items which may indirectly help your club, such as freezers, vacuum cleaners, mops, buckets and ice machines.

A full list of the lots available can be found via the sports equipment gifting legacy catalogue.

The application window will close on 18 September 2022 at 5pm. It is expected that all organisations will be notified the week commencing 10 October 2022, with collection commencing the same week for a period of 3-4 weeks.ย
