To help anyone with Parkinson's Disease
through ping pong (primarily) – and to have fun while doing it.
Just bring yourself on any Wednesday at 7:30 pm and you will be welcome. Let the club's front desk know that you are here for Parkinson's Ping Pong and they will point you to us. The club entrance fee is $10 (if this is problematic for you, please let Art or Nenad know and we will make arrangements).

I once helped an old blind woman cross Queens Boulevard. And what nerve! She actually resisted my entreaty to help … which I ignored for her own good. Well, okay, she probably would have made it without me because she was hooked up to a guide dog. But, look, I wanted...read more
