Harriet Swindells signs in Germany with Braunschweig

Harriet Swindells will play basketball overseas for the first time after signing with Braunschweig in Germany for the upcoming season.

The former junior international finished a successful college career at NCAA Division 2 school Barry in 2022, and is now ready for the challenge of turning pro.

“I am really excited about this move to Germany,” Swindells told Hoopsfix. “This is a very professional organisation which is going to give me everything I need to be successful this season.

“My goals are to win basketball games and put up numbers. I have a huge role within this team and I’m ready to step up to the challenge – it’s definitely a great starting point in my career.”

Swindells averaged 10.6 points per game across 122 appearances in five years for Barry with a career best of 29 points coming in the 2019-20 campaign, in which the Blackburn native averaged 15.3 points.

The sharpshooting guard previously came through the Leicester Riders programme – earning MVP honours in the 2016-17 WEABL season, alongside minutes in the WBBL.

Braunschweig compete in the second division in Germany and finished last season with an 8-14 record.
