Thanet Passport as it is more popularly known, helps organise and supports all primary school sports festivals and competitions across the district. Since its formation five years ago, Thanet Passport now has annual participation figures of over 9,000.
More than 4000 pupils a year - a third of children attending primary school in the Thanet District - have taken part in at least one of the 60+ Passport events and festivals.
In these days of increasing child obesity it is refreshing to find an organisation that is helping to buck the trend. The Thanet Primary Association for School Sport, or 'Thanet Passport' as it is more popularly known, helps organise and supports all primary school sports festivals and competitions across the District and the figures are impressive.
We organise all inter-school sports festivals and competitions – that's 25 different sports – American Football, athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, cross country, dance, dodgeball, football, golf, gymnastics, handball, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby league, rugby union, speed stacking, squash, swimming, table tennis and tennis. Last year our 65 festivals and tournaments provided 9000+ sporting opportunities and new sports are being introduced all the time with others in the pipeline, eg archery.
We have also developed strong links with local sports clubs, such as Thanet Athletics Club, Thanet Wanderers Rugby Club, Margate and Broadstairs Cricket Clubs, Margate FC, Manston Golf Club, Margate Tennis Club, Thanet Squash Racquets Club, Thanet Netball League. As well as helping to organise all the festivals and tournaments, Thanet Passport arranges for trophies and medals, certificates, first aid cover, coaching and venues.
Our aim is to get as many Thanet children participating in sport as possible, regardless of ability. Fair Play and Team Work is encouraged at all times, as well as the development of skills. The winners of many of our events go on to represent Thanet at County Finals with great success.
