Sport therapy is the best 'drug' for Parkinson's and other neurological conditions. Table tennis has is claimed to be the 'best brain sport'.

Giving people with Parkinson's the opportunity to take part in a world tournament because of their condition gives them something positive to aim for. Read my Testimonial Wall blog post of what others have said.

Parkinson's TT UK was established following the inaugural ITTF PWTTC in New York 2019 - after finding out there was no UK teams at that event, Andrew has been on a mission to get a squad to the next event.


Over the past 18 month, through a Facebook page and private group we've recruited players from across the UK: 10 England, 4 Scotland + 1 Wales, out of around 150 registered attendees for this international event.


With costs of up to £1,000 per player to attend, we are seeking support and sponsorship covering travel, accommodation & fees so we can attend as a united squad representing the three UK nations.

Opportunities for publicity:
- Sport Parkinson's Try-athon TT Demo, Worcester Warriors Sixways Stadium 24 July
- UK's inaugural National Parkinsons TT Tournament, St Neots 21 August
- German Open PingPongParkinson® Tournament, Nordhorn Germany, 3-5 Sept
- ITTF PWTTC Berlin, 8-11 Sept (live streaming of the final stages, and local press / TV)
- pre- & post tournament talks and presentations
- our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, Web
- Parkinson's UK branch network
- Clubs and players across the UK and members of Table Tennis England, Table Tennis Scotland and Table Tennis Wales

Budgeted Costs:
£200 travel
£400 accommodation
£150 registration & player fees
(£150 kit - stc for England players)

In addition to forming the UK alliance, we are on a mission to support local TT champions to educate and encourage other Parkinson's people to consider this sport as a fun and social form of exercise. 

We are currently in the process of setting up as a not-for-profit Charity / CiC / CASC to further our aims. We have also organised the first PingPongParkinson® UK National TT Championships at St Neots TTC on Sat 21 August 2021.
