The Commonwealth Games Team are looking for representatives from each region to sit on the Batonbearer Selection Panel.

The Queen’s Baton Relay will travel to every region in England, before arriving at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on 28 July 2022.

The criteria for a Batonbearer in England is someone who meets one or more of the following:

  • Always willing to take on a challenge and has a unique and inspiring story.
  • Has made a meaningful contribution to sport, education, the arts, culture, or charity.
  • Is a figure of inspiration that positively challenges others to achieve their best.
  • Has taken on a challenge or cause and made a positive impact within their community.

The judging process will be coordinated via an online judging system. Each nomination will be scored by two judges from the Panel, to create a total score.

The Commonwealth Games Team are looking for diverse representation to represent all the communities in your region. Please email by midnight Monday 14 February if you have a recommendation for a panel member or would like to be involved in this process.
