Panathlon gives almost 22,000 young people with disabilities and special needs every year the opportunity to take part in competitive sport

 In the last year, 21,906 children and young people from 1,335 schools in England and Wales took part in ‘mini Paralympics’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary-age pupils as well as our dedicated swimming, football, boccia and ten-pin bowling programmes. With an additional 4,611 students aged 14-19 fulfilling roles as specially-trained Young Leaders at our competitions, that made a grand total of 26,517 young people engaged in our sporting programmes in a single academic year.

  • The atmosphere that Panathlon creates is awesome. These people here are playing to win and it’s nice to see that attitude amongst them. I think it’s important that everybody has the chance to compete and take part at whatever level they want to.

    Steve Brown, Team GB wheelchair rugby captain at London 2012
  • I’ve been coming to Panathlon events for years and what never ceases to amaze me is how much enjoyment the athletes get from the competition and how competitive they are. But what is truly amazing is how the event has now grown. With over 200 events a year now, Panathlon really has cemented itself in the sporting calendar.

    Danny Crates, Paralympic gold medallist and world record holder in the 800m (T46) and Panathlon patron
  • I am proud that partners such as Panathlon are delivering on our vision of the Olympic & Paralympic Games boosting sports participation.

    Lord Seb Coe, double Olympic gold medallist
  • It’s fantastic what Panathlon does for disabled children. When I was first disabled and in a mainstream school, PE was really limited and the teachers didn’t really know what to do with me. If Panathlon had been available to me then, it would have helped me a lot for sure.

    Freya Levy, a member of the Great Britain wheelchair basketball team
  • There was nothing like this available to me when I was a kid. I wish I’d had the opportunity that these children have got. What Panathlon are doing is brilliant and I’m really happy to be here and try to inspire these kids to keep doing it.

    Richard Chiassaro, Team GB wheelchair racer and Panathlon patron
  • We are really lucky to have this Panathlon ‘resource’ which benefits our children so immensely. For them to be competing in the same venue where world-class athletes have performed just swells their pride.

    Rushmere Hall, Ipswich
  • We attend lots of your events in the Tees-side area, Panathlon is one of our student’s favourite events as it caters for all our students from age 2-19 who have various conditions.

    Kirkleatham Hall School, Redcar
  • This event sounded great and it was great! it exceeded our children’s expectations, thanks Panathlon!

    Southlands School Tyne & Wear
  • Thank you for hosting such a fantastic event. It was superbly well organised and had a lovely positive feel to the whole day. It was excellent experience for the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

    Felixstowe Academy
  • They sometimes live in quite isolated worlds, but being able to interact with other deaf children is a great experience for them. It helps them understand they are one small part of a big world.
