Over 1,000 schools across the country take part in ‘mini Paralympic’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary school children, along with dedicated football, boccia and swimming programmes. This has been extended further this year with 16+ competitions for College students. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (3,931 in 2018) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions. If you are new to Panathlon, please take a look at the video (at the bottom of the page) to get a flavour of what we are all about.

Find out what has been going on at the Panathlon Challenge.
Fifty-four young athletes represented their Counties today at the East Regional Final hosted at Mark Hall Sports Centre
Knightsfield School from Welwyn Garden City are crowned Panathlon National Deaf Secondary Swimming champions in London.
Teams of disabled young people from Bridlington jumped into the town’s new Leisure Centre pool, trying out Panathlon's P
It’s great to be back at Panathlon which is one of my highlights of the year. I’m delighted that we’ll be competing once again at the Olympic Park in June.
It’s been amazing, it’s brought them really together as a team, they’ve enjoyed working together, it’s a good lesson on sportsmanship and learning that it’s all about taking part. It means a lot for the school to be able to take part in a much bigger event, than just what the school can provide. It’s very special.
Panathlon gives the children more freedom. At school they are restricted to their schedules, but when they come here there’s more going on. They can go around and observe other things as well as participating themselves.
Panathlon is a fantastic event. It’s changed the way we do sport in school. We’ve set up after school clubs specifically for Panathlon so we train pupils up all the way through. There are other competitions, but Panathlon is definitely the best. It’s like the World Cup.
At the end of a Panathlon event I feel like it’s a big achievement for me, because I can’t really do many sports. This is one I can do, and I love it!
Panathlon is a really inclusive event. It’s difficult to find events that are suitable for SLD children and Panathlon is just that.
Panathlon gives disabled children something which they can achieve for themselves. They all want to do Panathlon.
I’ve been coming to Panathlon events for years and what never ceases to amaze me is how much enjoyment the athletes get from the competition and how competitive they are. But what is truly amazing is how the event has now grown. With over 200 events a year now, Panathlon really has cemented itself in the sporting calendar.
It was great to do sports that relate to our kids. Also, this competition is all about learning about winning and losing. Too often activities we attend don’t have this.
Without Panathlon, McKenzie Wouldn’t have had the opportunity to represent his school in any sporting event. Panathlon has made him enjoy sport and accept that he and others can achieve through sport.
