The entry deadline for the inaugural Ping Pong Parkinson National Championship has been extended.

The tournament is due to take place at St Neots TTC in Cambridgeshire on Saturday August 21, and the entry deadline is now Friday August 13.

To help keep everyone safe, the organisers will keep some covid-related protocols in place, including mask-wearing while off the court, cleaning of tables and balls and asking competitors to provide negative lateral flow tests from the day of the event or the night before.

The tournament is under the banner of Parkinson’s TT UK (PDTTUK), which supports players with Parkinson’s to play table tennis, exploring different ways to engage and support the Parkinson’s table tennis community. Click here for more info on Table Tennis England’s support for PDTTUK.
