2022 Commonwealth Games
News concealed by shooting controversy
The one o'clock news on BBC carried the announcement although it was well hidden beneath the headline that shooting had missed out. Beach Volleyball will feature in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

In fact, just three sports were added and in his statement today (30th July), Ian Reid, Chief Executive Officer for Birmingham 2022, explained they were adding three sports: women's cricket, para table tennis and beach volleyball all of which can be staged in venues in Birmingham or the West Midlands, bringing additional benefits to a region that is providing substantial funding for the Games. Shooting would have been held at Bisley, in Surrey.
