We are Ping Pong Parkinson.
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). If you think you will want to play regularly, consider becoming a member of WTTC. To get started, we will do a few exercises to warm up and then we will play ping pong. The club will provide the paddles and balls. We have all levels of players in our group, from beginners to accomplished players and volunteers who are happy to provide basic instruction.
Join us on April 27th for the 2019 Parkinson’s Unity Walk.
The 25th Parkinson’s Unity Walk will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 8:30am (rain or shine) in Central Park, NYC.
Every walker and donor makes a difference by taking the Walk one step closer to finding the cause and cure for Parkinson’s. By joining together with thousands of others, we’ll be empowering those who are living with the disease, and honoring those who lived with Parkinson’s.

I was snuffling at my next session with my 200 dollar per hour headshrinker. He asked me why I was making the respiratory noises and I lied. I told him I had a cold, but I was really about to cry. He handed me a tissue (for which I wondered if there would be an extra...read more
Ya know what my guru, the shrink, said? He said that, to some degree, we are all McArthur Wheelers! That’s right. Maybe our ideas are not as outrageous as Wheeler’s ludicrous folly, but we share with him, unhappily, a penchant for being overconfident – a confidence...read more
I’m rated a few hundred points higher than this one guy at the club – let’s call him Nemesis Uno – and you’d expect that I’d beat the pants off him all the time. I don’t. In fact, it’s the opposite. Nemesis Uno beats the crap outta ME! Why? Why Lord? What did I do?...read more
