Table tennis centre in MK aims to help people affected by Parkinson's with free activity

Milton Keynes Table Tennis Centre at Kingston Park has just been awarded a grant by Table Tennis England (the sport's National Governing Body) to run free sessions for the benefit of people living with Parkinson's in the area.

It is widely believed that playing table tennis can be of real benefit to people living with Parkinson's.

Milton Keynes Table Tennis Centre was keen to play its part and applied to Table Tennis England for the grant which enables them to open their fantastic, purpose built table tennis centre for free to the Parkinson's community and their friends and family.

The Secretary of Milton Keynes Table Tennis Centre, Julie Snowdon, said: "We are very proud to be launching these FREE Parkinson's Ping Pong sessions and hope they will not only bring all the benefits of this fun game to people living with Parkinson's in the area but also connect people and help them to find support and not feel so isolated".

The sessions are being supported by local player Liz Houghton, a Ping Pong Parkinson's World Championship medallist.

Milton Keynes Table Tennis Centre is supported by MK Community Foundation.

The sessions commence on Wednesday 7th June and will take place every Wednesday from 1-3pm. Free refreshments will be provided.
