Project Green Ball, a non-profit corporation promoting recycling of tennis balls, is pleased to announce its college tennis recycling program. With help from Wilson Sporting Goods, the maker of NCAA official tennis ball, Project Green Ball has assisted the UC Berkeley, Boston College, University of San Francisco, Boise State and Cal Poly SLO varsity tennis teams recycle their dead balls.
Special thanks for the west coast help on the college program goes to Jason Blum, San Francisco USPTA Regional Director, who has been advising PGB since 2013 in connection with college varsity tennis teams. If your college varsity team wants to participate in the PGB recycling program, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss enrolling in the program.
In addition, Project Green Ball has teamed with Donovan Tennis Strategies. College coaches attending the East Coast Showcase on June 27-29, 2014 at Yale University and The DTS College Recruiting Tournament on July 19-20, 2014 at Harvard University will be able to drop off their tennis balls from their recently completed season for donation to Project Green Ball. Players are also encouraged to bring balls from their recently completed high school season.
Since 1997, Donovan Tennis Strategies has been helping tennis players and their families navigate the college recruiting process to find the program and school best suited for their tennis and academic goals. DTS’s unique understanding of the recruiting and admissions processes, wealth of experience in customizing those processes for individual student-athletes, and personal relationship with an extensive network of college coaches throughout the country combine to make DTS the premier provider of Recruitment Consulting Services.
