Project Green Ball awarded its second “Green Ball” certificate of recognition to the Pine Brook Country Club in Weston, Massachusetts, for donation of 10,000 tennis balls to PGB. Pine Brook recently passed the 10,000 ball donation level by contributing 900 additional balls to PGB, thereby bringing its total to 10,603 balls donated to PGB. Special thanks to Jimmy Sharton, Head Tennis Pro at Pine Brook, for his continued support of PGB.
PGB will award Green Ball certificates of recognition to facilities donating 10,000 balls to PGB and, periodically, Green Balls for other notable contributions to PGB. The Longfellow Club, in Wayland, Massachusetts, was the first recipient of a Green Ball certificate of recognition.
If you are interested in participating in Project Green Ball, please reach out to Ben@projectgreenball.org to learn more about the program. Project Green Ball, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission it is to recycle tennis balls into second surfaces. Once Project Green Ball collects and delivers 200,000 tennis balls to our turf manufacturer partner, IGK Equestrian, they will donate an equestrian turf to a therapeutic riding center for people with disabilities. Currently, PGB has collected over 107,000 balls.
