    Three women’s medal events will be added to the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

    They are: Twenty20 cricket, beach volleyball and Para-table tennis.

    According to the BBC, with these additional sporting disciplines, the Games will have 135 women’s medal competitions scheduled, compared to 133 for men.

    Birmingham will also have the largest Commonwealth Para-sport program.

    There are currently seven mixed events, with the confirmed program to be announced next year.

    The three additional sports were approved by a majority of the 71 Games associations but shooting and archery have missed out, having also applied to be added to the event.
