Background

The Pacific Mini Games is a multi-sport event contested by countries and territories located in Oceania. It was known as the South Pacific Mini Games prior to 2009. The event has been held every four years since the inaugural games in Honiara, Solomon Islands in 1981. It is called the 'Mini' games because it is a scaled-down version of the main Pacific Games and is similarly rotated on a four-year basis in the intervening years between the main games.

There are 37 sports approved by the Pacific Games Council as of December 2017. Unlike the main games, the Pacific Mini Games does not have a compulsory sports list. However, 50 percent of the sports selected for a games must be from the compulsory sports list of the Pacific Games Council.

After the 2017 games, 30 of the 37 sports have been included at the mini games since the inaugural edition in 1981.
