In nine years of playing the sport 19-year-old Gregg Warburton has collected numerous accolades and trophies: from Most Improved U15 wheelchair basketball player at The Lord’s Taverners National Junior Championships (August 2010), to Most Improved Player at the GB Junior Summer Camp (October 2010), to winning numerous gold medals with North West at The Lord Taverners U19 National Junior Championships.
An outstanding 2012 saw the Manchester Mavericks and Oldham Owls player continue to build upon this success: not only was he part of the England North team which won Gold at the Sainsbury’s School Games in the April, but he also played a crucial role in assisting Great Britain to the bronze medal game at the U22 European Championships, ensuring the nation a qualification spot for the 2013 U23 World Championships (Turkey).
In 2014, the 2.0 player received the honour of being called up to represent Great Britain at his second U22 European Championships; a fantastic tournament seeing Gregg help the GB U22 Team take the title and bring home the prestigious gold medals.
In addition, 2014 also saw Gregg play a vital role in the GB Junior Men’s stunning performance at the Kitakyushu Cup (Japan), the team earning the silver medal.
As well as his wheelchair basketball success, off the court in 2012 Gregg was one of eight players from the GB U22 Team to receive the great honour of being selected to carry the Paralympic Flag into the stadium at the Opening Ceremony of the London Paralympic Games.
Outside of wheelchair basketball, Gregg enjoys playing the drums and table tennis.
