This is a group for men with Parkinson’s. It’s based on the idea of meeting in a casual and relaxed setting where recreational games form a backdrop to simply chatting. The games range from tennis to boules and Finska, from backgammon and boggle to board games, but anything of interest really. The chat ranges from simply social to the sharing of information and experiences of Parkinson’s of course.
Don’t be dissuaded if you’re not so interested in games. You’re welcome to just come along and chat. Partners are also welcome.
Starting 13th January 2022, the Manuka coach David Beniamini will direct us in tennis-based exercise drills and workouts. Importantly, these sessions will cater for all skill and fitness levels. You can be a beginner. The primary emphasis is on exercise and movement, so important for Parkinson’s, but tailored to your needs by the coach.
These sessions will be free to Parkinson’s ACT members. Make sure you bring a racquet (we will have a couple of spares), some suitable shoes and clothing, and a water bottle.
The coach-run tennis will go from 10:15am to 11am, but you can participate as it suits you.
