The Story of an English Exception














Paul Stimpson with over 120 senior international appearances for England and Great Britain, is one of the few home grown English players that consistently succeeded on the international basketball stage.
He is a former England captain who represented his country on 112 occasions: a record that has stood since 1988.  He attended Borough Road College where he trained as a  Geography and PE teacher.
He worked at Greenshaw High School in Surrey for three years before joining the Crystal Palace Basketball School as their director which allowed him to travel around the country to schools and colleges coaching basketbalI.  
In 1990, Paul moved with his family to join the basketball department of an international marketing company, ISL Marketing, based in Luzern, Switzerland. ISL were the exclusive partner to FIBA, the world governing body of basketball.
In 2000, Paul and family moved back to England, still with ISL, this time working with the ATP tennis tour.
In 2003, Paul returned to his first love, joining FIBA in Geneva where he heads up their television department.  Paul lives in Gex,  France, across the border from the FIBA headquarters in Geneva with his wife Pat, their twin sons Michael and Philip, their youngest son Richard and daughter Tamara.
