The South Pacific Games were initially held irregularly; since 1971 they are held every four years; since 1981 another tournament, called South Pacific Mini Games, is also held every four years.
The New Hebrides changed name to Vanuatu upon independence. Tahiti played as French Polynesia in the first three tournaments. (Of course Tahiti is the main island of French Polynesia, and it is assumed that in all cases all players came from there.)
Tournament renamed Pacific Games from 2011 onwards.
