A word from the president

850_3002_001.jpg

Tennis is one of the most polluting sports on the planet. Tennis balls are basically made of rubber (C5H8), wool (C16H14R7O8) and nylon (C12H22N2O2). Rubber and nylon are not biodegradable and therefore every time a tennis ball is thrown it has a strong negative impact on the environment

 

Since entering into an agreement with Recycle Balls Canada in 2020, over 50,000 balls have been recovered in Canada.

 

We need the collaboration of all indoor and outdoor tennis clubs that are important players in the world of tennis in order to reach our goal of collecting 150,000 additional balls by the end of 2024!

Thank you in advance for your contribution and we look forward to collaborating with you for the 2023-2024 season!
