Manx Youth Games prepares for 16th year

The Island's Senior Sport Development Officer hopes more children consider taking part in sport as a result of the Manx Youth Games.

The annual multi-sport event launched in 2002, and will take place for the 16th time in May this year.

The day starts with an opening ceremony before youngsters aged six to 15 take part in a range of sports.

13 sports are on offer to those interested in taking part, with training offered in the build up to the event to prepare for the games.

Speaking to MTTV, Gianni Epifani is hoping those taking part will develop a life-long interest in sport [play audio].
