MEMORIES By Tommy Caffrey

As part of the 75th Anniversary celebrations of the foundation of the Irish Table Tennis Association, it was decided to invite Tommy Caffrey, one of our greatest ever players, to share with us his memories of playing table tennis over the last 50 or so years.

Here, in his own words, is his story.
