Changing the throw-away

culture in tennis

Making waste recycling simple and effortless

32 tennis- & padel balls ends up in a landfill, every second!

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE our racket sports, but the environmental price is simply too high. Every year, more than 1 billion tennis balls are produced, used and thrown away. This is more than 100.000 tons of rubber and felt that ends up in landfills from where it will pollute for the next 400+ years.

    Intuative & Simple

    Attractive & Accessible

    A straightforward collection process, convenient and easy for all. This is how we make a difference in a few simple steps.

    1. 1
      Tennis court where we collect used tennis balls for upcycling and recycling

      Based on the size of your tennis club or padel center, we'll install anywhere from 5-25 ball recycling bins.

    2. 2
      Recycled tennis balls ready to shipment

      When the bins are full, pick-ups are easily arranged through our App. After collection, the bins will be shipped to our facility and new bins will be send your way.

    3. 3
      restock for upcycled tennis ball felt pads

      At arrival, the balls are washed, sorted, and prepped for further recycling or upcycling. We test each ball to determine their most eco-friendly use, and to ensure every ball is utilized in the most sustainable way possible. From here they are given a new life - one extra shot.
