Although table tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world, the opposite is true in the United States. Table Tennis, sometimes referred to as Ping-Pong, is one of the most underappreciated mis-understood sports in the United States and TopSpin new documentary, hopes to change that.
TopSpin is a movie documenting the determination and progress of three teenage American up-and-coming players as they fight to qualify for the 2012 summer Olympics. Sounds awesome, right? Check out the trailer.
The Wall Street Journal referred to TopSpin as “A King Kong of Ping-Pong Movies” and the L.A. Times Review as “table tennis’ ‘Hoop Dreams’”. The amount of press they have received is a testament to the quality of the movie, and justifiably so. The film is set to be on itunes on December 1st and on DVD on December 15th, make sure you check it out!
