At the end of the Manx Youth Games we feed keen players into regional clubs and our active junior league. There is also a Christmas Cup competition split into various age categories specifically for all of the new juniors.

Junior League players are also encouraged to play in our ‘Junior Development Teams’ which compete in the Senior League. By rotating players we give as many youngsters as possible experience in the league with dedicated coaches to support them. The Third Division is comprised mainly of junior teams so it is an ideal introduction into league table tennis.

We run island squads where the juniors receive additional coaching to develop their skills. The IoM plays as a nation in off island tournaments. Increasingly, our best players are usually teenagers who have come through the MYG and some progress on to play in the World Championships.
