Call this old age, extreme edition: Eight players with 703 years between them compete in the Over 80 World Table Tennis Championships. Ping Pong is a wonderfully unusual story of hope, regret, friendship, ambition, love, and sheer tenacity in the face of aging and mortality. Premieres on PBS September 9, 2013.
