Nenad, Who Plays Ping Pong

6 mins


Life after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease may seem especially unthinkable for a professional musician. Croatian-born guitarist and composer Nenad Bach was at the top of an international career when he was diagnosed, but “it maybe prolonged my life,” he says, “because it slowed me down.” His most effective treatment, which he discovered accidentally, is playing ping pong. It’s an activity he now shares with other people with Parkinson’s through his organization, Ping Pong Parkinson.
