He represented Austria during his lawn tennis career and, in 1912, notably won a silver medal with Arthur Zborzil in the men’s doubles event at the outdoor events held during the Summer Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden. Fritz Pipes was also an active member of the Austrian Lawn Tennis Federation, which was founded in 1902.

Between 1907 and 1913, Fritz Pipes played ice hockey for the Prague-based Deutsche Eishockey-Gesellschaft (German Ice Hockey Society). He enjoyed a great deal of success with this ice hockey club’s team, both nationally and internationally.
