History

In 2006 in Melbourne, Australia won the first ever Commonwealth Games Gold Medals in both the men's and women's competitions. New Zealand's teams and England's teams won the Silver and Bronze Medals respectively.

It was announced in 2011 that Basketball will return to the games at the 2018 Games on the Gold Coast. A total of 16 teams (8 men and 8 women) are scheduled to compete in 2018.[2]

Although Canada, one of the strongest basketball nations in the world, did not enter a men's or women's team in 2006, it will do so in both tournaments in 2018.

In August 2017, it was announced basketball would be returning for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, along with the addition of the 3x3 format.[3]

Commonwealth Basketball Championships

Although basketball has only been a part of the Commonwealth Games programme twice, there have been Commonwealth Basketball Championships held.

In 1978 the first such competition was co-hosted by England, Wales and Scotland.

In 2010 the Commonwealth Basketball Championships were due to be held in New Delhi, the venue for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. However, in February 2010 FIBA cancelled the event, on the grounds that the international calendar was too crowded.
