    Where can I buy or view videos of the significant matches of Jacques Secretin, in particular those from the 1976 European Championships where he won, and 1976 French Open where he won again against Istvan Jonyer?

      Dear Rohan,
      thank you for your question and sorry for the late reply.
      Unfortunately the European Table Tennis Unions has not such videos, but you could raise the question to the French Table Tennis Federation perhaps: fftt@fftt.email
      Kind regards,
