Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 13,000 disabled young people every year

 Over 800 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. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (2,190 in 2017) 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.

  • Panathlon is a really inclusive event. It’s difficult to find events that are suitable for SLD children and Panathlon is just that.

    Heather Jolly, teacher at Shenstone School, Bexley
  • Most of our students don’t get chance to take part in activities like this outside of school, so this sort of thing is invaluable.

    Sally Proctor, teacher at Heritage House, Chesham
  • 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.

    Aaron Bint, PE teacher at Queensmill School, Hammersmith & Fulham
  • It’s been absolutely amazing for the students to be able to access Panathlon – to come away and work as team, have a go at different events and cheer each other on. It’s really important for these kids to have that opportunity. Sport should be for everyone, so why shouldn’t they have a chance to take part?

    Jess Russell, sports coordinator at Paddock School, Wandsworth
  • I think it is a fantastic charity. The more people, of all abilities, that you can get involved in sport and health and fitness in a fun and engaging way can only be a good thing. And to have this event at the London Aquatics Centre is just another example of the legacy of London 2012

    Tom Daley
  • In terms of offer for disabled children, Panathlon is the strongest example of how to run an event that is exciting, enjoyable and challenging but brings wide benefits as well as the activity. It’s a model that’s needed throughout the country, there’s no doubt.

    Barry Horne, Chief Executive of the English Federation of Disability Sport
  • Panathlon is pretty much the only competition these kids have. A lot of them don’t have the option for sports outside of school. Having this big tournament is really the only time they can access all of these sports in one place. It’s very rare and it’s very good.

    Brandon Mullins, Head of PE at Beacon Hill Academy, Essex
  • Panathlon helps with the kids’ independence and helps them socially, meeting other children from other schools and just giving them a bit of experience of life outside of school. Plus life is one big competition.

    Judy Wells, teaching assistant, Fairfax School.
  • Panathlon is something I look forward to every year. It’s given these kids so much encouragement. For a lot of the kids it’s the only competition they are doing.

    Marianne Sharpe, teacher at Samuel Rhodes School, Islington
  • One of our children said it was the first time he’d ever won anything in sport.

    Shirley Bond, PE coordinator at Stratton School, Gloucestershire
