Testing Times for Herbert Neubauer

Herbert Neubauer signs to withdraw


Gold medallist in 1996 in Lillehammer when he won men’s singles 50-59 years; then eight years later in 2004 in Yokohama when succeeding in men’s singles class 60-64, at the Muscat 2023 World Veteran Championships in Oman, it has not been the best of fortunes for Germany’s Herbert Neubauer.

A member of the Swaythling Club International, competing in men’s singles 75-79 years, he finished the group phase without a win to his name, before in the consolation event being forced to withdraw through injury.

In the group stage he was beaten by Switzerland’s Peter Schwartz (11-9, 11-3, 11-6), India’s Ramakrishna Pudugramam (11-5, 11-8, 1!-9) and Hungary’s Istvan Szalai (11-7, 11-8, 11-1).

Through to the consolation draw, he withdrew through injury when due to face India’s Puran Chand Sardana.
