Panos Mayindombe announces retirement

Panos Mayindombe has announced he will retire this summer following a 15-year career in the professional game.

The 33-year old calls time on a memorable playing career, with his last outing coming in the play-off quarter-final second leg defeat to Leicester Riders.

Mayindombe played for the Panathinaikos Academy as a child, before signing his first professional contract with the club at the age of 19.

He went on to play six years in the Greek A2 Basket League and subsequently moved to the BBL in 2014.

In his first year with the Durham Wildcats, Mayindombe posted 7.9 points per game before returning to the Greek second tier for a further season.

Mayindombe joined the Flyers in 2017, where he quickly became a fan favourite over the last four years and played a key role in helping the club its first ever BBL Cup Final in 2020.

In an open letter to supporters, Mayindombe said: “For 15 years, I’ve put basketball first, and now it is time for the next chapter in my life.

"The Flyers have given me some unforgettable years, and the club will always hold a special place in my heart.

"From the day I walked through the door, the Flyers Family welcomed me with open arms and I want to thank all the volunteers, staff, players, coaches and sponsors for always being there, through the good days and the bad.

"I’ll still be there next season, sat alongside you at the WISE Campus, and I look forward to us all coming together to cheer on the team we love."

Flyers Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas said: "Panos has been a fantastic guy to have in our team and we are very thankful for his contribution to our programme.

"He has represented the club with tremendous passion, energy and dedication and will always be a member of our Flyers family. 

"We wish him all the best with his future aspirations as he hangs up his basketball boots and enters the next chapter of his life."
