Joe Hickey retires as Chair of Table Tennis Ireland

The Board of Table Tennis Ireland has announced that Joe Hickey has stepped down as Chairman of the Association with effect from 30th Sept. Joe had not sought re-election at the AGM in June but agreed to continue to assist in identifying a successor.  

Joe served as Chairman from 2007 to 2011 and as President from 2011 to 2015. Joe agreed to re-join the Board as Chair in January 2019 to assist with a number of challenging issues. 

The Board would very much like to acknowledge Joe’s significant contribution to the development of the Association during his time as Chairman and President. 

At the 2016 AGM, after he had stepped down from the Board, Joe was the proud recipient of the Veselsky Award, the highest award for services to the Association. 

We all wish him every success and good health in the future!
