It's seems like there is always time for tennis. While you are preparing for your next league match or just for fun keep these ideas handy to make your tennis game greener.
So here are my top five things that you can do to green your tennis game:
- Recycle those tennis balls - There are all kinds of ways to recycle tennis balls or what some might call upcycling. Give old balls to your coach. Give old balls to your kids. Give old balls to your dog, but did you know that there is a business in Arkansas (Yes, who knew?) called Rebounces? You can send them roughly 300 tennis balls at a time with free shipping and they will recycle them. They have a tiered system for recycling. Newer balls get re-pressurized and sold back to tennis facilities and coaches across the country. Slightly older balls get sent to schools and nursing homes to protect floors. The oldest balls get chipped and sold as a raw material to companies who use it in a variety ways. So check out www.rebounces.com.
