Once every two years, thousands of athletes from across the globe — from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic to the Caribbean — come together to compete in the NatWest International Island Games.
Months of rigorous training are put to the test over a week of events as competitors swim, shoot, sprint and swing their way to victory. From target and endurance events to team sports such as sailing, basketball and beach volleyball, the NatWest International Island Games holds competitions in a diverse range of sports and is open to competitors as young as 13.
The NatWest International Island Games welcomes spectators at all events, giving host islanders an exciting—and all too rare—opportunity to watch live international sport on their home turf.
The Gibraltar 2019 NatWest International Island Games XVIII will be held from 6th to 12th July 2019.
