I started playing tennis earnestly 1994 when I was 17 years old. A tennis club in our neighbor village was founded (my family was co-founder) at this time. Before I played a couple of times just-for-fun during the summer because I was also playing in a football team occupying my whole free time. After quitting the football club I needed another passion and found Tennis. I started playing championships and in a league one year later. 1997 I changed my club and played from now on for Mistelbach, in a higher league and with better colleagues.
The summary below shows the clubs I have played for and the related leagues with the highest rankings. I also won a couple of more or less important tournaments (many more unimportant tournaments are not listed below).

I am currently playing for TC Stade-Lausanne in the Swiss Tennis Interclubs. My current ranking and latest results can be found at Swiss Tennis.


As I was born in "the skiing country" I am also quite good in skiing. Unfortunately my hometown in Austria was too far away from the mountains to go skiing regularly but I was skiing at least one week per year since I was 3 years old. Without taking any skiing lessons I was able to win some small and regional contests in my childhood, but really nothing special.
Currently I am discovering ski resorts outside Austria and I would like to go to many more in the future. France, Italy, USA, Canada, and of course Switzerland are on my list. A list of ski resorts I already were is given below.

Gastein (Bad Hofgastein, Bad Gastein, Dorfgastein, Sportgastein), Flachau, Flachau-Winkel / Kleinarl, Mittersill, Saalbach / Hinterglemm, Schladming / Reiteralm, Semmering (Hirschenkogel, Stuhleck/Spital), St. Johann in Tirol, Wagrain, Werfenweng, Zauchensee, Zell am See
Chamonix (Argentière), Portes du Soleil (Avoriaz, Les Gets, Morzine)
Cran Montana, Grindelwald, Gstaad, Les Diablerets, Nendaz, Portes du Soleil (Champéry, Champoussin, Les Crosets), Saas-Fee, Verbier, Veysonnaz, Villars-Gryon, Wengen, Zermatt
