Adoni Maropis 2103 Last usatt tournament 2017. Plays with hardbat.

Frank Caliendo 1658 Last usatt tournament 2015

Judah Friedlander 1607 Last usatt tournament 2014

Franks level is probably closer to 1800+ the last time we played but that was a while ago.

From the title of this topic I was expecting submissions such as this.

A masseuse practicing social distancing rubs me the wrong way.

Yes, she played a table tennis coach in an HBO series (Entourage).

There is a Hollywood movie called "Balls of Fury" from 2007 about a tabletennis pro. Quite funny and the only full movie about tabletennis I know of.

In the 1965 movie, Ship of Fools, there is a scene with Shonie Aki standing in for Mel Ferrer, where he is playing hardbat on deck. Of course, WC Field's famous comedic play in the movie, You Can't Cheat an Honest Man. I have often suspected that Donald Sutherland is a table tennis fan, as there are many hints to that in his movies. I recall one scene where he is in a room, and table tennis is being played on the tv, another movie where there is a poster on a wall that is an advertisement for table tennis in Mandarin. There are other hints in some of his other movies. There is some very amateur playing outdoors by Jack Nicholson in Five Easy Pieces. I used to have a list of movies with table tennis scenes, but lost it.

There's another movie, far better than 'Balls of Fury', called 'Ping Pong', from Japan which came out in the early 2000s. Oh and I see Stillt has just posted a still from it above!
Highly recommended.

Also 'As One' from Korea (a feature film), based on the true events at the 1991 World Championships where North and South Korea played as 'United Korea' and managed to beat the invincible Chinese women in the Corbillon Cup Final. A great film!

And as for scenes - well, how about that scene in 'Forrest Gump'?

..and, my memory is a bit hazy here, but aren't there some TT scenes in that old classic Powell/Pressburger movie 'A Matter of Life and Death'??
