Ping Pong Playa is a 2007 comedy film directed by Jessica Yu and written by Jessica Yu and Jimmy Tsai.[1] The story centers on a Chinese ping pong family living in California with a buffoonish and irreverent son.


Christopher Wang is a teenage boy who lives under his asian parents. His brother, Michael Wang is a prominent ping pong player and takes after their family's tradition of being professional ping pong players. After being fired from his job and the injury of his brother, Chris has to work at his family's ping pong institution. Though Christopher initially detests ping pong, he soon grows a passion for the sport and participates in a championship in the place of his brother.
