Seven players with 703 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.

There will be a forum discussion after the screening on 'Living life to the Fullest' facilitated by SeniorsAloud founder Lily Fu and team members. Attendees will receive complimentary copies of the latest issue of The Senior magazine. Refreshments will be provided.
