Hall of Fame Tourney

The International Tennis Hall of Fame will donate tennis balls from the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships from July 8 – 14, 2013 to Project Green Ball.  In addition, Project Green Ball will be a Green Sponsor of the tournament and the International Tennis Hall of Fame will provide Project Green Ball with exhibition space at the Tournament’s Family Fun Weekend and Qualifying Rounds on July 6 and 7.

Fans donating six or more dead balls to Project Green Ball at the tournament will have the opportunity to compete for prizes at our exhibition booth.  So if you attend the tourney, please bring your dead tennis balls to donate to Project Green Ball.

Hosted on the historic grass courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships is the only ATP World Tour event played in the Northeast and the only pro tournament played on grass courts in North and South America. The tournament draws 32 top male players to Newport direct from Wimbledon to compete for the Van Alen Cup and more than $450,000 in prize money.

This year, the tournament includes an exciting group of American players – including,  two-time defending champion John Isner and Sam Querrey, James Blake,  Ryan Harrison, Jack Sock, Brian Barker, Rajeev Ram and Michael Russell – along with notable international stars, including Leyton Hewitt. In addition to exciting pro tennis, a highlight of the week will be the Class of 2013 Enshrinement Ceremony on July 13 at which Martina Hingis, Thelma Coyne Long, Cliff Drysdale, Charlie Pasarell, and Ion Tiriac will be honored.

If you intend to attend the tournament and would like to volunteer for Project Green Ball at our exhibition booth, please reach out to us at info@projectgreenball.com.  We’d love to get you involved with our collection efforts.Day 1 HallHall of Fame Tennis Championships

    I really appreciate what your organization has accomplished. You are doing the right thing recycling the tennis balls and using them for turf to help disabled folks ride horses. Keep up the great work.

    Best Regards,
