Island Games

The 'Inter-Island' Games were born in the Isle of Man in 1985, with the intention of bringing together a number of small islands from different parts of the world in friendly competition as part of the Isle of Man's Year of Sport. Athletes from as far afield as Iceland and Scandinavia in the northern hemisphere, the British Isles, the Mediterranean, down to St. Helena in the South Atlantic, took part. This inaugural Games saw around 600 competitors participate in seven sports representing 15 Islands. The Games have grown substantially since this time, with the XVI NatWest Island Games hosted by Jersey in July 2015 welcoming approximately 2,430 competitors in 14 sports, representing a total of 24 member Islands.

  • Further information

    • The Island Games is now a firmly established event taking place once every two years, providing an opportunity for hundreds of young sportsmen and women from small island communities, to compete and enjoy international competition against other islanders with similar standards of performance.
    • The event provides excellent opportunities for Islanders to raise their standards in sport through competition at an international level, but also brings further opportunities for cultural exchange and social interaction with visiting teams, and to establish new lifelong friendships with fellow Islanders from different and varying nations.
