Commonwealth Games Survey


With only 18 months to go the Commonwealth Games is moving another step closer and to help with preparations we’re inviting residents, businesses, schools and organisations across the Borough to start sharing your ideas, priorities and expectations for the Games.  The responses received from this survey will help inform the council’s planning and investment over 2021 and 2022 – particularly ensuring that the opportunities the Games creates are relevant and accessible to everyone. 

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games (28 July to 8 August) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase the West Midlands on the global stage. The most dedicated, highly trained and determined athletes from across 71 nations will come together in a momentous celebration of sport, competition and community. Solihull Council is one of the host authorities, with 6 events (Badminton, Weightlifting & Para Powerlifting, Boxing, Table Tennis and Netball) taking place at the NEC.  The Council is researching what activities and events might be delivered in association with the Commonwealth Games.  This short survey will contribute to that research and inform the types of activities, events opportunities the Council can consider providing for the Borough.

The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.  There are two versions, one specifically for children and young people, as well as one for all residents and stakeholders living and working in the Borough.  The survey will close at 12 noon on Wednesday 17 February so please participate and share before then. 

In addition to the survey, we can also arrange to speak to groups and meetings to talk about the Games and to start collecting people’s ideas, comments and contributions.  If you have a meeting taking place during February, or would like to arrange one for your group to talk about the Games, then please get in touch with to arrange for a council representative to attend and participate.
