A formidable figure with extensive reach, Lee Manning is a force to be reckoned with on any wheelchair basketball court.

Just three months after joining his local club the Peterborough Phoenix, the 4.5 player was invited to attend his first GB Junior Camp – earning a call-up for his first international tournament, representing Great Britain at the 2006 U22 European Championships.

After assisting Great Britain to silver at the U22 European Championships, Lee was promoted into the GB senior team and soon made his debut for the GB Men, playing at the BT Paralympic World Cup and tours across Europe and Australia. Lee narrowly missed out on selection for the London 2012 Paralympics being named as first reserve.

In 2014, Lee made his major debut for Great Britain at the 2014 World Championships and, the following year, assisted the GB Men to European gold and a place at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, where he was part of the ParalympicsGB team that brought home the bronze medal.

During GB’s historic title winning 2018 World Championships, Lee was as a key point scorer and a key figure under the opposition basket, before being part of the team that added another European title in 2019.
