Leanne Walker was a two-time Olympian as a player, and is making a major impact in the coaching space.

Her achievements in 2019 were incredible. As head coach of St Peter’s School, Cambridge, she led them to their fifth straight Schick Secondary Schools Girl’s national final, where they claimed their fourth title in five years. They also won the 2019 Secondary Schools 3×3 Championship.

Walker’s team came a highly credible fifth at the ISF World Schools Basketball Championships in Greece.

At a regional level, Walker coached the Waikato team to the 2019 U15 National Championship, while remaining at the helm of the Waikato Wizards NBL team, who finished third in 2019.
