    Jacques Secrétin, 1949-2020

    I was saddened today to read about the demise of Jacques Secrétin, at 71 years of age.

    Secrétin was a great player in his own right, winner of many tournaments, a long-time fixture in the world top 10, winner of 61 french championship titles, a personality in TT, and an inspiration in bringing the joy of table tennis to a wider audience. His skillful, playful and comical demonstrations together with the late Vincent Purkart quickly became legendary.

    I've seen Secrétin in person, when he participated in a tournament, and also gave a show with Purkart on the side. He helped spark the love of the sport, and I'm endebted to him forever for it.
