I will be shooting a film soon and am thinking about writing a scene into the script which would have 4 boys playing competitive ping pong. What is the difficulty level of adding in the flying ball in post? Is that something that a newbie in After Effects could learn quickly?

It all depends what you want to do, how you want to shoot this. In theory, introducing a ping pong ball in a shot shouldn't be too hard, however, if slow motion, bullet time and/or extensive camera moves are involved, it can become a difficult project. I recommend doing some tests before you go on to production.
