Commonwealth Games

Welcome to the Commonwealth Games section on the World Netball website.

Netball was introduced into the Commonwealth Games in 1998 and has been an integral part of the programme since. It is currently considered a ‘core sport’ and its position in the games has been assured for the foreseeable future with the ratification of ‘Transformation 2022 – the Strategic Plan of the Commonwealth Games Federation 2015-2022’.

The top netball nations are all Commonwealth countries and there is a close alignment between the values of the CGF and World Netball.

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will take place from 28th July – 8th August 2022, with the netball action taking place from Friday 29th July to Sunday 7th August 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham.
