Bib No. 53 – MODERN TABLE TENNIS

Bib No. 53 – MODERN TABLE TENNIS

Author : Jack Carrington
Comments : The best technical book up to this time, and still reasonably accurate when the final edition was issued in 1960. It became the best seller of any TT book, with the text suffering only minor alterations, and the models later changed to short trousers.
