A 6’1” centre, Chandler only played briefly for the GB national team, in the 2006 Eurobasket campaign when they started off in their bid to win promotion from the B Division of Eurobasket.

At the time, Chandler’s EBL playing career, spent with the Nottingham Wildcats, was winding down as she switched to a career in coaching.

In January 2008, her efforts with the EBL division one Wildcats saw her appointed assistant coach to Deirdre Hayes on the England under-18 team. Chandler, who played college basketball at Coker University in South Carolina, has also made a habit of helping promising young British players follow her example and secure places at universities in the States. In 2009, she retired from her involvement in basketball to concentrate on a career in education.

Damian Jennings says: “Leanne stepped in at the last minute in our inaugural season and, with her experience from US college and the EBL, she was a great addition to our roster. The mental skills and understanding of the game that helped her do so well when she stepped into coaching were a great asset to us in that first year.”
