Project Green Ball is happy to announce that the following tennis clubs have contributed, in total, 5,195 balls to Project Green Ball:
Nashua Swim & Tennis Club – 2,140 balls
Pine Brook Country Club – 1,685 balls
Longfellow Club – 840 balls
Natick Racket Club – 510 balls.
Project Green Ball has now collected or has commitments of over 46,000 balls. Once Project Green Ball collects and delivers 200,000 balls to our equestrian turf manufacturer partner, IGK Equestrian will donate an equestrian turf to a therapeutic riding center for kids with disabilities or life threatening diseases.
The balls donated by the Longfellow Club and the Natick Racket Club were a combination of balls from teaching programs and from member’s contributions to the collection bins located at each club. Thanks to Laury Hammel, Phil Parrish and the members of the clubs for helping us.
Pine Brook’s donation results in the club leading all New England clubs in donations to Project Green Ball. Pine Brook has now donated over 4,000 balls to Project Green Ball. Thanks to Jimmy Sharton and the folks at Pine Brook for thinking of us.
Nashua Swim & Tennis’s contribution is part of the expanded tournament partnership between Project Green Ball and NSTC. Nashua will partner with Project Green Ball during its Thanksgiving Level 6 tournaments to encourage all players to donate their used balls to Project Green Ball. In addition, all balls used during the tournaments will be donated to Project Green Ball. Thanks to Robb Schachter and the folks at NSTC for supporting us.
If you have dead tennis balls or if you’d like to help Project Green Ball, we’d love to hear from you. Please reach out to us at email@example.com.
