Sports in Vanuatu

Hello everyone,

The Olympic Games are now just a few days away and we would like to talk about sports.

What sports are the most popular and/or unusual in Vanuatu?

Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Vanuatu?

Thank you in advance,


Cricket used to be played on (in?) the British Paddock, when I lived there in the 1970s. Only a few of us played, but since then it's become more popular, I gather. This link is to a small contribution I made to a collection of New Hebrides stories that a friend of mine began to put together before he became incapacitated. Fun times!
