Summer of sport
13 July 2022
Love it or loathe it, July is a bumper month for sport! The ace tennis championships, Wimbledon, started off the month along with an electrifying British Grand Prix. There’s still a whole host of exciting sporting events still to come and here are a few events we’ll definitely be watching.
The beautiful game
The 2022 UEFA European Women’s Football Championship starts on 6 July and the month-long tournament features 16 teams competing to reach the finals at London’s Wembley Stadium on 31 Jul1. England is the host team, the Netherlands the defending champions, and Northern Ireland will participate in a UEFA Women’s Euro competition for the first time. You can catch all the action on the BBC.
Chasing the chequered flag
Formula 1 has four, fast paced, exhilarating races in July. The winner of the British and the Austrian Grand Prix have already been decided but who will dominate the next three races taking place in Hungary and France? Is Mercedes back to form, can Red Bull keep ahead of the pack or will Ferrari outshine them all? We can’t wait to watch the highlights on Channel 4.
The Commonwealth Games, often referred to as the Friendly Games, is an international multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930, and, with the exception of 1942 and 1946, has taken place every four years since then. Over 5,000 athletes compete at the Commonwealth Games in more than 15 different sports and more than 250 events. From Archery to wrestling, the games are a celebration of sport and human performance. The BBC will be covering the action from Birmingham.
