Twelve-year-old Arlo doesn’t want to stand in his big sister’s shadow on the basketball court. He wants to do something different. Something he can call his own. A Ping-Pong master at home, Arlo decides to try his hand at the Olympic sport of table tennis. But he quickly learns it is a completely different game than the one he grew up playing in the basement. Also, he’s not the only kid who takes Ping-Pong seriously. As Arlo enters the world of competitive table tennis, he finds himself challenged unlike ever before. Will Arlo give up when it gets hard or find a way to persevere against all odds?
