Table tennis sessions are from 9.30am to 2pm and 4-9pm on most days, with the first medals available on Monday August 1, when the sessions are from 9.30am-2.45pm and 4.30-9.30pm, and the following day when the single session is from 11am-4.30pm.

The other medal matches are on Saturday August 6, Sunday August 7 and Monday August 8 – the final session running from 9.30am-1.15pm on the final day.

In all, there are 286 sessions of the Games, with 283 gold medals to be won. The Games start with the opening ceremony on Thursday July 28, 2022, and the sporting action gets under way the next day.

The final day of sport, plus the closing ceremony, is on Monday August 8 and table tennis features on every day of the Games, with standing and wheelchair para classes alongside team, singles and doubles competitions.

Ian Reid, Chief Executive of Birmingham 2022, said: “We’re on track to stage a magnificent edition of the Commonwealth Games and we have seen huge interest in tickets in recent weeks. Now more than ever, people are searching for something to look forward to and that is certainly what we will deliver.

“There are millions of sports fans out there who, because of the pandemic, have not been able to attend events for 12 months and with things moving in the right direction, and vaccines being rolled out, we are anticipating a huge amount of interest when our tickets go on sale later in the year.”
