The 22nd Commonwealth Games are taking place – and here’s your day-by-day guide to all the action in Birmingham.
More than 5,000 athletes representing 72 nations and territories are competing in 280 medal events over a packed 11 days. It’s the final day of action, with the last 12 gold medals to be decided.
All times are BST and events are subject to change.
Monday, 8 August – day 11
Gold medals: 12
Badminton: Women’s and men’s singles, women’s and men’s doubles, mixed doubles
Diving: Mixed synchro 3m, mixed synchro 10m
Squash: Women’s and men’s doubles
Table tennis: Women’s doubles, men’s singles
09:00-14:00 – The final day of the Games begins with badminton and there are England players in three finals. Marcus Ellis won gold in men’s doubles in 2018. He’s back in another final, this time the mixed doubles with Lauren Smith. Smith has won five Commonwealth medals but never gold. She’s also in the women’s doubles final and could come away with two gold medals on the final day.
09:30-13:15 – It’s a long, long time since anyone other than Singapore won the table tennis women’s doubles. Three of Feng Tianwei’s incredible 10 Commonwealth table tennis medals have come in this event, and she’s in the final again, this time against Australia. Wales, featuring teenager Anna Hursey and Charlotte Carey are in the bronze medal match. England have Liam Pitchford in the men’s gold match against India’s Sharath Achanta, with Paul Drinkhall in the bronze match against another Indian opponent, Sathiyan Gnanasekaran.
10:00-13:00 – The last diving action in Birmingham features the two mixed synchro contests. The 3m synchro event represents a great chance for Scotland, whose James Heatly and Grace Reid together won world bronze in June, finishing well clear of nearest Commonwealth rivals Malaysia in seventh. England should have a shot at the 10m synchro title but Australia may be the team to beat.
10:00-14:30 – Squash ends with the women’s and men’s doubles. England are guaranteed a gold medal with Daryl Selby and Adrian Waller taking on Declan James and James Willstrop. The women’s event is an opportunity for New Zealand’s Joelle King, who is one of the best in the world, to add another medal but she and team-mate Amanda Murphy face England duo Alison Waters and Sarah-Jane Perry, who have been on the medal podium already in these Games.
12:30-15:00 – Men’s hockey brings the curtain down on the action at the Commonwealth Games with Australia taking on India for the gold medal. Before that England face South Africa in the bronze medal match at 09:00.
What else is happening?
The closing ceremony begins at 20:30 – reuniting the athletes at Alexander Stadium and handing over to Victoria, Australia for the 2026 Games.
