World Juniors History

The official World Junior Championships started in 1980, although there had been an unofficial  men’s team event operating since 1972. Prior to 1980 there was no individual event to accompany the unofficial team events, which tended to be played in conjunction with existing junior open championships.

Until 2009 the events were held biannually, but since then both individual events have been held annually, with the team event alternating between Boys and Girls.
