OAPs travel to Mongolia to play ping pong

TV appeals would have you thinking OAPs are all husks with no central heating.

This wonderful slice of life from the Britdoc Films initiative says cobblers, travelling to Mongolia with a group of over-eighties table-tennis players, who all seem to have had a dunk in the pool from Cocoon.

Directors Hugh and Anson Hartford show the good and the sad: the mourning of loved ones, and the joy at the damage you can still do if you keep on eating your greens.

To quote one German female contender, “Young people are shitting their pants.”

Family pack edition comes with portable ping pong gear.
