First up is this wonderfully uplifting documentary that explores the hope, regret and immediacy of growing old.

Terry (81), having been given a week to live, gets in sight of winning gold. Inge (89) has used table tennis to train her way out of the dementia ward she committed herself to. Australian legend Dorothy deLow is 100, and finds herself a mega celebrity in this rarefied world and Texan Lisa Modlich, a new-comer at 85 years old, is determined to do whatever it takes to win her first gold. This film is as much about the tenacity of the human spirit as it is a meditation on mortality.

We'll be organising a ping pong league, so get down with the double bounce and find that sweet spot.......
