Padel Tennis – Parkinson’s Guernsey Taster Session
We know the importance, especially for people with Parkinson’s, of staying physically active. It helps them to live well with Parkinson’s and there’s evidence that regular physical activity can have a positive impact on symptoms, both physically and mentally and can be as important as medication.
Parkinson’s Guernsey is therefore proposing more physical activities for its members and more generally, to all people with Parkinson’s living in Guernsey.
The third of these taster sessions is for Padel Tennis.
Padel Tennis is a cross between tennis & squash. The court is closed in so there’s no chasing after a rogue ball. It is highly recommended for people with Parkinson’s who are quite agile but ANYONE can try it and we hope they will! The movements whilst playing tennis are known to ease some symptoms in some people with Parkinson’s. No previous experience needed.
We just ask people who might be interested in joining any or all of the taster sessions to register by email.
It is all free, beginners are welcome and they don’t have to be a member of Parkinson’s Guernsey to attend.
