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.

  • I love competing against other schools as it’s great to meet new people. We’re over the moon and amazed to be going to the Olympic Park.

    Danielle, Islington
  • I’m really glad I’ve met somebody with the same condition as me. We’ve both got spina bifida, so I can relate to him and I’m really glad that we had a chat. He’s a big inspiration, so I think I might take up racing!

    Zahra Naqvi, aged 13, Milton Keynes, Bucks, on meeting Panathlon patron Richard Chiassaro
  • It’s nice to meet new people from other schools. I enjoy school, but this is a good opportunity to come out and take part. It feels good to be representing the school.

    Callum MacDonald, aged 14, Croydon
  • 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.

    Wendy Moran, teacher at Maltby Hilltop School, Rotherham
  • 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
  • On behalf of our children at Girlington Primary School for a fantastic Panathlon experience. The activities were well thought through, taking into consideration a variety of disabilities. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and memories were made. The whole event ran like clockwork which added to the enjoyment. We are already looking forward to next year.

    Amanda Simpson, a teacher at Girlington Primary, Bradford
  • I’m the only pupil on the Panathlon team from my school, so it’s a great opportunity to have fun and meet other people.

    Jamie Keat, aged 10, Hammersmith & Fulham
  • Panathlon gives young people a sense of pride, self-esteem and achievement. You can take that into all aspects of life.

    Elaine Burgess, school games organiser for Barking & Dagenham
  • This is the first time the school has competed externally, what an experience for them to come here with children from other parts of the region.

    Roseanne Hutchinson, Delamere, Trafford
  • A lot of kids don’t get the opportunity to represent their county even in a mainstream school, let alone a special school. For some of these kids, this could be the peak of where they get to in sport, so what a great event. They are overwhelmed and think it’s absolutely incredible. That’s what it’s all about.

    Kevin Hughes, Assistant Head of PE at Arbour Vale School, Slough
