KEY ACTION TO WATCH:
07:10: Artistic gymnastics - women's team final and individual qualification. Australia will be desperate to regain the team title from England, who have been weakened by the injury-enforced absence of several leading gymnasts. Both nations are likely to be challenged by Canada, who are led by world all-around silver medallist Ellie Black. This is the concluding session of the team event, which doubles as qualification for the individual all-around and apparatus finals.
10:30: Beach volleyball - Canada v Fiji, women's Pool B. The world's top-ranked women's team grace the first day of the inaugural Commonwealth Games beach volleyball event. Canada's Melissa Humana-Paredes and Sarah Pavan paired up post-Olympics and should enjoy a routine opening win over Fiji.
10:37: Swimming - men's 50m butterfly. Ben Proud is the reigning world and Commonwealth champion in this event but the Englishman can expect to be pushed hard by Chad le Clos of South Africa.
10:38: Track cycling - women's individual pursuit. British team-mates turn medal rivals in this event and the final could provide an absorbing climax between Olympic gold medal-winning team pursuit members Elinor Barker of Wales and Scotland's Katie Archibald, who is the reigning European champion.
10:56: Swimming - men's 200m freestyle final. South Africa's Olympic silver medallist Chad le Clos will start as favourite but he could be challenged by England's 2015 world champion James Guy, Calum Jarvis of Wales and Glaswegian Duncan Scott, who holds the British record over 100m.
11:28: Track cycling - men's individual pursuit final. England's Charlie Tanfield is aiming to complete a meteoric rise from amateur enthusiast to Commonwealth champion. The 21-year-old just missed out on an individual medal at last month's World Championships.
