Comments : A photographic record of World and Olympic Championships between 1999 and 2001. Some superbly exciting action shots, to capture all the tensions and dramas of these events.

Comments : A history of the L&DTTA League for the period 1926 – 2001. A labour of love by their secretary Tony Harris that is full of anecdotes, tales, records and a good read even if you’re not a Scouse. Well researched and illustrated in Black and White.

Comments : One of those infuriating little books that you buy anticipating a content largely about Table Tennis. This one is a teenage humour of questions and answers batted to and fro between parents and their offsprings. Only a passing reference to our game.

Comments : A potted history of the first 50 years of the Bromsgrove, Redditch & District TTA. There are lots of tales and yarns of this minor Worcestershire League. Not especially successful in terms of great players produced or trophies won, but it seems like a lot of friendly fun. How many hundreds of other leagues must be like the BRDTTA.

Comments : When I ordered this book I expected to receive a treatise on the mental or physical agility of dinosaurs, to discover if they had some sort of ability to indulge in a form of sport. What I got was a children’s book of dinosaurs showing them taking part in fishing, cricket, dancing etc. Nor really what I had in mind.
