Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 17,500 disabled young competitors every year

 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.

  • We’ve got children who are in powerchairs, who don’t have access to many other events, but here they’ve got a chance to compete on an even level with other children from the area.

    Carina Taylor, Head of PE at Chadsgrove School, Bromsgrove
  • Panathlon is about everyone being equal and able to play. So many people get the chance to play. The experience for our kids is really positive. It’s just brilliant.

    Lauren Hastings, PE teacher at Marjorie McClure School, Bromley
  • As well as the multi-sport, we do the Primary Panathlon and our able-bodied children have been trained by Panathlon to run those events as Leaders, so we’ve made it a whole school thing. It’s very much part of the school.

    Lorraine Veck, Disability Sports Co-ordinator at Coteford Junior School, Hillingdon
  • I’ve really enjoyed Panathlon. It’s really helped me to be more confident and to get more involved in sport. A few years ago I couldn’t have imagined myself here.

    Toyin Fabusiwa, aged 16, Croydon
  • It’s amazing. The kids couldn’t stop talking about it. They’ve been working really hard over the last term – practice, practice, practice. They’ve been really excited about today for a few weeks. Look at the venue. You couldn’t ask for anywhere better to compete – this really is the icing on the cake.

    Jonathan Bath, teacher at The Village School, Brent
  • Lillie had no confidence in the water, but today she amazed us, the activities made it so inclusive and the all the children surprised us what they could do, today gave children at Norfolk Primary a chance to shine.

    Norfolk Primary Parent, Natalie Mitchell
  • This has been brilliant experience for the children. We have really enjoyed competing in the Primary Panathlon over the past two years, and now that there is another opportunity for them to compete it’s all extremely exciting.

    Julie, Teacher Hempsted Primary School
  • 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
  • This is my second year volunteering at a Panathlon event and it is a truly inspiring organisation. the enthusiasm the children have for the event, together with the thanks they express to the people volunteering is humbling.

    Louise Colsell, St. James’ Place Client Services Manager
  • “Our GCSE PE students have been leaders at quite a few Panathlon events now and throw themselves into it every time. They develop their communication and leadership skills and they thoroughly enjoy working with children. They absolutely jump at this opportunity.”

    Chessington’s PE teacher, Mr Lucas
