When I think of Table Tennis, my thoughts immediately go to Forrest Gump and Tom Hanks rise to ping pong fame. It also reminds me how I thought I could totally be a ping pong champion and how I made my parents buy me this faux ping pong set that consisted of a net with suction cups net poles so that It could temporarily be affixed to my parents dining room table. I would get sad when I had to take it down after playing because I would have to set the table for dinner. My table tennis dreams were squashed by dinner, but in TOP SPIN several teens don’t let dinner get in the wait of their training. The well-made documentary highlights how they balance Olympic table tennis training, school, and their social lives.
