Table Tennis and Health

Looking for a new exercise venue that is fun and has the potential to offer sustained relief from the symptoms of Parkinson’s?  Brad has a novel suggestion that works for him: table tennis.

I wanted to mention a new idea for Parkinson’s Disease exercise: table tennis.  I am talking serious, competitive table tennis.  I have not played for 25 years, but I just spent 3 hours playing with NO symptoms (I have not medicated for a few days).  I’m pretty rusty, but I was able to execute high-speed movements, with eye-hand coordination, and no tremor for the duration.  Also, this level of play works up a pretty good sweat and cardio rate.
