Commonwealth Games 2022 Venue

About Sandwell Aquatics Centre

Sandwell Aquatics Centre is the sole venue with a brand new design to host the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. It has an aquatic and diving competition pool, and the venue will be home to the most medal-winning events of any venue.

A temporary para-swim warm-up pool and an indoor dry diving practice area have also been constructed in the venue.

Accessibility: The location is in a residential area with sidewalks for pedestrians.

It will include various facilities accessible to the disabled inside our fan area. These include changing facilities, toilets, and changing rooms. Open to the public June 2023.

Accessibility for All – Gen22

Gen22 gives youngsters (16-24) of the West Midlands the opportunity to gain employability, increasing opportunities at Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

If you look deeper into Gen22 you can see it’s designed for teenagers who cannot access games or other similar opportunities. The barriers could be insecurity; being a young carer, being a parent at a young age; or having a criminal record.

Participants will work alongside Birmingham 2022’s authorized organizations for a 30-hour volunteer task. This will be linked to the following:

  • Physical activity and well-being
  • Creative
  • Digital

Our goal is that students receive assistance before, during, and following the project to ensure they can maximize the value of the opportunity.

Gen 22 has been designed by young people to ensure that it is best suited to the requirements of participants and that they can enjoy and profit from.

Participants will be nominated by the program to be part of the program and not asked to apply directly. Gen22 Gen22 team is seeking organizations that work with youth who want to be a Nominating Organisation and refer their children to the program.

Gen22 Gen22 group is also seeking organizations that could provide some or all Gen22 participants the chance to work together. Assignment providers could be from any industry, for instance, businesses, charities, sports clubs, and educational institutions. Assignment providers will be granted permission to use Gen22 as a Gen22 brand (if they meet the eligibility requirements).
