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.

  • 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
  • Kieran Rutter, Great Arley School 13, “I feel proud to be here in this venue. It shows if you work really hard you can earn experiences and medals like this. Put your head down, don’t worry about anyone else, and just head for the gold!”

  • 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
  • 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 is brilliant. I’ve been coming here since the age of nine and enjoy it every year. I take part in the wheelchair slalom and the relay races. I love racing against others.

    Jo Makumbi, aged 15, West Lea School, Enfield
  • It feels like heaven, this is what pure enjoyment feels like, It being Columbus’s first every victory just makes it that more sweet.

    Gabriel Ellis, captain of the Columbus team
  • Watching Tom Daley before was just awesome. I love Panathlon because when I get frustrated or angry, it makes me feel free just to run or swim and forget everything else.

    Melissa Fletcher, aged 16, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
  • What a brilliant event, we are so pleased to have had this number of schools from across the county involved and starting them up so young into the Panathlon programme

    Phil Truby, an Events Officer from Yorkshire Sports Foundation
