Panathlon in Kent

The JCB Group are delighted to sponsor the Panathlon Challenge events in Kent. This organisation creates sporting opportunities for disabled young people in Kent.

Panathlon run challenge competitions across Kent during the year and also run coaching days for the young people who coach the teams and help run the events.  Regional winners can go through to national finals.

The competitive sporting events are not only great for fitness, but also give the youngsters involved a sense of team spirit, self-esteem and improved confidence.

The leadership programme is great for encouraging a sense of responsibility and self confidence for the young leaders involved.

Panathlon swimming is growing in Kent and next year there’s the potential for the winner of the Kent competition, to go forward to the Southern England Finals at the Olympic Aquatic Centre.
