THE preliminary 'knock out' rounds of the 2010 Panathlon Challenge sports competition for East London disabled youngsters opens on Tuesday.
Four teams from the Olympic 'host' boroughs including Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Greenwich compete at the event being staged at East Ham's Langdon Secondary school.
The other East London group, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Havering, holds its preliminaries at Dagenham's Robert Clack School on February 1.
The winners from each group face each other in the Area finals back at Langdon School on March 16, to find the team to go through to the all-London Grand Final near White City in June.
The Panathlon Challenge is now in its 10th year for young disabled Londoners. Young athletes from eight to 18 compete in boccia, New Age kurling, polybat, soccer, table cricket and athletics.
The Panathlon charity, which has been organising sports competitions for London's young disabled since the Millennium, is raising �250,000 for equipment, coaching sessions and this year's competitions.
