The Lawn Bowls & Para Lawn Bowls 2022 Commonwealth Games programme will commence on the 29th July 2022, running through to the 6th August.

Birmingham 2022 represents an unparalleled opportunity for the sport of lawn bowls to grow in this country. As one of the sports that make up the Commonwealth Games, a home edition constitutes a fantastic chance for our sport to be in the spotlight.

Also including para-lawn bowls, the spectators will witness bowlers maintaining composure under immense pressure as they battle to get closest to the jack. Demanding strategy and cunning moves, this event at the Commonwealth Games is one of the most uniquely nerve-wrecking sports.

We will be updating this page with lots more content as we approach the start of the Games in 2022!

Team England

Our Performance Squad have been preparing over the course of the past few years for this showcase of the sport.

Playing under the Team England banner, the squad of 10 will be aiming to secure glory at Victoria Park next year.

Our squad for the event is still being whittled down. You can see the current members of the Performance Squad here.

Para Lawn Bowls also present a fantastic opportunity for success, and the England squad will be announced in due course.

Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa

The home of English Bowls will be transformed next year, as the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games programme is played on the hallowed greens of Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa.

In just the third ever Games hosted by an English city, the lawn bowlers vying for Commonwealth glory will compete for victory between Friday 29 July and Saturday 6th August.
