Tennis ball recycling

Many thanks to all those who have contributed old balls to our recycling scheme.

We have sent nearly 500 balls to our recycling partners and have raised £50 for the club!

The balls are passed onto places for children to play with.  For example between April and June this year 3,400 balls went to Save the Children for use in places like Africa, 1,750 went to children’s homes, retirement homes and nurseries and 1,900 went to animal rescue centres.  So sure you will all agree this is a very worthwhile cause.

Thanks also to Carol Lee for helping with this – great example of a volunteer run activity at the club!  Rememberthat some balls are still useable, so please return them to Amy and Chanya if they are playable.
