This means Table Tennis joins Athletics, Rugby, Badminton and Netball to have qualified for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Florence Seera, Jemimah Nakawala, Parvin Nangonzi and Rita Nakhumitsa are the only four female table Tennis athletes that will travel to UK. The 2022 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XXII Commonwealth Games and commonly known as Birmingham 2022, is an international multi-sport event for members of the Commonwealth.
