We are Ping Pong Parkinson.

Mission:
To help anyone with Parkinson's Disease
through ping pong (primarily) – and to have fun while doing it.

Join us
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.

Wednesdays 7:30pm-8:30pm

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.

Achoo!!

I was out two weeks with the flu. There are tests some physicians use to diagnose the flu but I didn’t take any tests, so how did I know that I actually had the flu and not a common cold? Well, there is often some uncertainty about the correct diagnosis – flu or cold...

Sandpaper Vs. Sponge, Part II

The pairing of rubber and sponge in seemingly infinite combinations is a catastrophe. It has ruined ping pong (and created “table tennis"). The result of the unfortunate marriage of these two materials creates a game that is too fast and too tricky. Result: the points...
