Tucked away in a corner of Bryant Park in the heart of New York City, there is an incredible story of a community coming together over a love of ping-pong.

 

The Tables is a heartfelt documentary from filmmaker Jon Bunning about the two table tennis tables in the park, and the unlikely gang of individuals who have formed around them. Old or young, rich or poor, the tables are open to anyone who wants to play, and every night a gang of regulars from all walks of life play out a dramatic tournament, whatever the weather.

The documentary looks into the lives of some of the individuals who patronise the table, from investment bankers on six-figure salaries, homeless people who have found a way to connect with others through the game, and even the table-tennis professional who is responsible for the tables being in the park – but keeps this secret to himself.

 

The documentary is beautifully shot, respectful to its subjects and thorough in its research, and is a celebration of something beautiful that could only happen in a place as diverse and bustling as New York City.
