Born in Athens,[1] Pipinis began playing football with local side Akratitos. He moved on to Veria, Panserraikos and Thrasyvoulos before joining Asteras Tripoli on a free transfer in June 2010.[2]

On 1 January 2014, aged 29, Pipinis moved abroad for the first time and signed an 18-month contract with Cypriot club APOEL.[3] He made his debut on 4 January 2014, coming on as a 74th minute substitute in APOEL's 2–2 home draw against AEL Limassol for the Cypriot First Division[4][5] and scored his first official goal on 9 April 2014, in his team's 4–0 away win against Doxa Katokopias for the quarter-finals of the Cypriot Cup.[6][7] Pipinis won his first ever career title, after APOEL won Ermis Aradippou 2–0 in the Cypriot Cup final and lifted the trophy.[8][9] Ten days later, Pipinis won also the Cypriot First Division after APOEL's 1–0 away victory against AEL Limassol in the title deciding match of the competition.[10][11] On 1 June 2014, APOEL terminated Pipinis' contract with the club by mutual consent.[12]
