Peter Ian Philpott (born 21 November 1934, Manly, New South Wales) is a retired leg-spin bowler and middle order batsman who played for New South Wales and Australia in the 1960s. More recently, he has been known as a coach.

He made his Test debut in the West Indies in 1964–65 and took 18 wickets (at 34.94) in the five Tests. Back home against England in the 1965-66 Ashes series he took 5/90 in the first innings of the First Test at Brisbane, forcing England to follow on, but took only 8 wickets (46.37) in the first three Tests of the series and was dropped.

He played for New South Wales from 1954–55 to 1966–67, and toured New Zealand with the Australian XI in 1966–67. His highest first-class score was 156 for New South Wales against Queensland in 1963–64.[1] His best bowling figures were 7 for 53 against Western Australia in 1960–61.[2] He captained New South Wales in several matches in 1963–64 and 1964–65.

He played as a professional in the Lancashire League for Ramsbottom in 1955, 1959 and 1960, and for East Lancashire in 1962.

He later became a prominent coach.
