Ping Pong

A 2012 documentary film by Anson and Hugh Hartford 80 minutes


Call this old age, extreme edition: Seven players with 620 years between them compete in the Over 80 World Table Tennis Championships in China’s Inner Mongolia. British players Terry, 81, who has been given a week to live, and Les, 91, a weightlifter and poet, are going for the gold. Inge, 89, from Germany, has used table tennis to paddle her way out of dementia. And Texan Lisa, 85, is playing for the first time. Ping Pong is a wonderfully unusual story of hope, regret, friendship, ambition, love — and sheer human tenacity in the face of aging and mortality.

This event is a collaboration with POV, the award- winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS

Discussion afterwards led by Sensei Joshin O’Hara
