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 so inclusive. We’ve got kids with physical disabilities, some in wheelchairs, autistic children and kids with learning difficulties. It’s a very inclusive event, which is exactly what we’re looking for.

    Liam Welch, teacher at Billing Brook School, Northampton
  • Panathlon is proving so popular that even able-bodied children are wanting to get involved now!

    Lorraine Veck, Disability Sports Co-ordinator at Coteford Junior School, Hillingdon
  • Panathlon means everything to the kids. There’s nothing else for them where they can compete at sport, so it means the world to them. If it wasn’t for Panathlon they wouldn’t be competing.

    Janine Edwards, teaching assistant at Whitmore High School, Harrow
  • It’s brilliant. It’s a fantastic event and an ideal opportunity for our students. There are so many learning opportunities today: just to travel here, getting changed in a different environment, social skills, meeting different people, listening to instructions that they have to follow. They’ve done really well.

    Kuben Reddy, teacher at Doucecroft School, Colchester
  • I feel like a real sportsman doing wheelchair slalom. Panathlon is great because it’s only disabled people that can take part and I got near my personal best today.

    Reece, Barking & Dagenham
  • 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
  • The Mayor and I are delighted to be supporting the Panathlon Final, the culmination of a year-long programme of fantastic sporting activity. The Panathlon Foundation do incredible work that benefits thousands of young disabled Londoners and their appearance at the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a fitting finale to the year.

    Kate Hoey MP Commissioner for Sport
  • I always thought that I wasn’t the sporty kind and wouldn’t be good at sport, but I got selected for Panathlon and, as I’ve got older, I’ve realised that I’m quite good at it and I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s great to know that sport is available for everyone.

    Zahra Naqvi, aged 13, Milton Keynes, Bucks
  • Panathlon really helps form the backbone of the PE activities that we do. We start in primary school so that kids get a taste, then it’s something that they aspire to take part in when they move up the school.

    Fiona Bell, PE teacher at St Giles School, Croydon
  • I knew we would win again. I just knew it. This is fantastic. I am very excited and happy.  I just love the table cricket, which we won a gold in too.

    Gemma Commons, aged 19, Wiltshire
