Peter John Manning (born 17 May 1946)[4] is a former Australian rules footballer who was highly successful in the West Australian National Football League (WANFL) playing for the Swan Districts Football Club.

A skillful and hard running wingman or centreman, Manning played the majority of his career in these positions. Manning is a life member at Swan Districts and is listed on a half forward flank in their Team of the Century.
