This tournament will encourage intergenerational and cross-cultural interaction and dialogue between Asian immigrants and non-Asian participants, as well as between older and younger generations of ping-pong players. As part of our signature series “East Meets West Cultural Experience,” we will be showing a trailer for “The Power of PingPong,” a documentary film project that began in 2018. We hope to release the film in conjunction with our Chinese New Year celebration for 2022. The objective of the film is to explore the lives of Asian immigrants and beyond through the lens of ping-pong playing. Please join us and learn about this incredible documentary! The competition categories will include: 1. Senior: male, ages 65+; female: age 60+; rating under 1,700. 2. Adult: male, ages 19-64; female ages under 59; rating under 1,700. 3.
