Uwe Bewerdorf (born 4 November 1958 in Freital, Saxony, East Germany) is a German former pair skater.

Uwe Bewersdorf was a team with Manuela Mager. He started to skate with the age of 7 at the club Betriebs-Sportbund-Gemeinschaft Post Dresden. Later the club was renamed into SC Einheit Dresden. He was representing East Germany (GDR). His coach was Uta Hohenhaus.

The pair Mager/Bewersdorf was the first in the world to execute in competition a clean thrown loop. Because Manuela Mager finished her figure skating career in 1980 he had to change his skating partner. He teamed up with Marina Schulz. However the pair could not qualify for international competitions due to many injuries.

Uwe Bewersdorf studied sport at the DHfK in Leipzig.

He works as a tax accountant in Baden-Württemberg.

Uwe Bewersdorfs name is sometimes spelled with double “F“ in the end. This happened due to a mistake of German Bureaucracy. His parents are spelled with a single “F”.
