Ben Leitch, a Wheelchair Basketballer from Perth, thrived in his first international tournament for the Great Britain Junior Men’s Team. Ben was part of a 12-man squad that attended the XXV Trofeu International Barcelona Tournament which returned home undefeated. The tournament was a warm up for the U23 European Championships which will be taking place in September, with selection of the final squad still to take place.

Ben’s passion for Wheelchair Basketball is clear and his dedication to development has seen him shine in the sport. Ben recently signed for the highest level Wheelchair Basketball team in the country, the Glasgow Rocks Wheelchair Basketball squad.
