I saw a movie simply titled "Ping Pong" a couple of weeks ago. It was about a group of people who were World Champions in Vets TT, specifically in the oldest age groups like O75, O80 and O85.

Has anyone else seen it?

There was a Japanese movie of that title.. but it didn't involve senior citizens. It did have a chopper as the main character, though (and a Chinese guy as the main villain/rival).

That's the one dazzler!

This movie was more of a documentary than anything, not a fictional story. It followed the story of about a dozen elderly folk playing in the China World Vets in 2010.

The guy on the poster is Les D`Arcy a crafty lp player and sadly no longer with us but still bit of a legend around here.There was a time when if fixtures clashed in his first match he would ask to play his 3 opponents first then cycle from Leeds to Wakefield (could be anything from 10 to near 20 miles depending which side of the cities)and compete in the fixture there!
Havn`t seen the movie yet sadly
