I got a chance to play table tennis in Sports Champions with the Move at this years fan expo, as well Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest.
All I can say is its gonna take some getting used to. The layouts are changed so you'll have to learn where all the buttons and get used to using them in their new locations on the Move so you can input commands as quickly as through the normal ps3 controls.
That being said, I really did enjoy what little of Sports Champions I played, but I found LoTR to not as accurate as Sports Champions. By that I mean is that while gestures work like stabbing into the screen to execute a stab attack, the normal sword fighting feels like the same stuff over and over again and does not appear to be actually one-to-one. However the arrow shooting seems to be over sensitive compared to the rest of the game and my guy was aiming as if he had just finished off a bottle of vodka.
Still something new and worth trying.
P.S. If you play the LoTR demo, don't try to kill everything as its hard lol and you can just run through. Oh and there's health in the barrels.
