Today we delivered our first ever Primary Panathlon competition with 4 Schools, 2 each from Haringey & Enfield, thanks to support received from Hilton in the Community Foundation.
Primary Panathlon is based on with 6 development activities from our Panathlon Sports. There were skills based games of Table Cricket, Boccia, New Age Kurling, Football, Athletics – Field & Track, and a number of games that tested the players core abilities of speed & agility along with the all important team work.
Tony Millard, the Project-Ability Leader for North London, said, ” The Primary Aged Sports Calendar has been crying out for an event like this. The Primary Panathlon had it all. This multi sport, skill based competition was as fun as it was challenging. Everyone had a great time while learning some of the skills that introduced them to the Panathlon Sports they will enjoy when they are older.”

Mehmet Ali Gur, a Sports Leader said, ” We helped at Panathlon today and it’s amazing. It took place at Northumberland Park School, where I am studying a BTEC in sports. This was the first time I’ve been at a Panathlon Challenge Competition and to see the children so enjoying themselves was the highlight on my day. ”
