Table Tennis – GAME ON!
Andrew Cassy is our latest blogger with BIG ambitions too.
Andrew wants to encourage people with Parkinson’s to try table tennis, “the best brain sport activity”. If required he will even help you to establish TT as ‘therapy’ sessions for your local area. He ultimately is aiming to get the first UK/England squad to attend the next ITTF Foundation Parkinsons TT World Championship.
His blog will report the journey from YOPD in 2010 through to attending the ITTF Parkinson’s TT World Championships expected to occur towards the end of 2020 – thanks to the inspiration and motivation from Nenad Bach ‘Ping Pong Parkinsons‘ and Ian Marshall from the ITTF Foundation.
Posts will be made related to :
- EDUCATION: exercise research and the benefits thereof specifically related to PD
- EXERCISE: finding or setting up your local TT session club
- ENGAGEMENT: taking part in local & national tournaments for PD table tennis players
- EXCELLENCE: creating the first UK/England team to be represented at the next ITTF Foundation Parkinsons Table Tennis World Championships
