In response to requests from tennis fans, sustainability advocates and therapeutic riding supporters, Project Green Ball has initiated an Ambassador program. The program allows supporters of Project Green Ball to assume leadership positions in regions throughout the United States to facilitate the collection and recycling of dead tennis balls. For those who are interested in helping Ambassadors, we are also initiating a volunteer program.
Project Green Ball is pleased to announce the appointment of our first three Ambassadors – Brandon Still in Michigan, Robert Ma in the New York City Area and Alex Heil in Chicago. Brandon, Robert and Alex each independently contacted Project Green Ball and asked to participate in the growth and development of PGB. We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome them as our first Ambassadors.
Brandon Still is a tennis coach in the Detroit area at the Eastside Tennis and Fitness Club. He has spent a lot of time volunteering with therapeutic riding programs for mentally handicapped children and understands the value of therapeutic riding programs. Brandon has jumped right in to Project Green Ball by enlisting participation in the PGB program by the Eastside Tennis and Fitness Club, Lochmoor Country Club and The Grosse Pointe Hunt Club. In addition, Brandon has obtained the agreement of the Albion College tennis team to donate its dead balls to Project Green Ball.
Robert Ma is a tennis enthusiast, architect and maintains a global role at MMoser Associates – leading the firm’s Sustainability Initiative. Rob plays at various locations in New York and is in the process of building a community of tennis enthusiasts through the Brooklyn-Manhattan Tennis Meet-Up Group.
Alex Heil plays tennis in the Gladiator Tennis league, which expects 800 players this year in the Chicagoland area. He works in marketing for a medical non-profit with over 50,000 members worldwide. He is passionate about tennis and helping others, much like his idol, Andre Agassi. Alex intends to organize the donation of balls from Gladiator tournaments and from Chicago area clubs. As Wilson is the Official Ball of Gladiator Tennis, Wilson Sporting Goods has agreed to help facilitate the participation of Gladiator Tennis in Project Green Ball.
We would also like to welcome our first volunteer to Project Green Ball. Alexandra Cahill is a Junior at Holliston High School, in Holliston, MA, where she is a member of the varsity tennis team and environmental science club leading sustainability initiatives. Alex is working with Tri-Valley area tennis clubs and high school teams on their donation of used tennis balls to Project Green Ball.
