Please note, this event has now been cancelled due to travel issues and will be rescheduled in the Autumn.

The newly completed Sandwell Aquatics Centre in Smethwick will host the diving and swimming events for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games from 28 July to 8 August 2022.

The state-of-the-art, regionally significant facility will create a lasting legacy for community health and wellbeing with its 50m Olympic-sized swimming pool as well as a 25m diving pool, community swimming pool and seats for up to 1,000 spectators. The centre brings with it a host of socioeconomic benefits including job creation, apprenticeships and local procurement measures to stimulate investment in the area.

RTPI West Midlands Young Planners are invited to take a bespoke tour of the centre and learn from the project team about practical challenges, local regeneration, community engagement and legacy proposals.
