    It seems not all rich people can influence others, as shooting won't be in the 2022 Commonwealth Games: https://www.insidethegames.biz/artic...is-to-be-added Shame they couldn't bring back the tennis. I think India is the only country to have had tennis at the Commonwealth Games.

    https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/new...l-tax-16641204 Not everyone is agreeable with this tax on hotels during the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

    What on earth is the attraction of beach volleyball? Fair enough if it's somewhere like Sydney which actually has beaches, but it's in Birmingham which is almost as far from the sea as you can get!

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/shooting/49341765 Nigel Adams, the Sports Minister, is willing to compromise on the shooting being left out and hopes Birmingham and Bisley in Surrey will host the different shooting events around the time of the Commonwealth Games.
