Your Old Tennis Balls

We have agreed to provide all of our old tennis balls to a charity called Mary's Meals who provide goody bags to the children in Africa who are not as fortunate as ourselves. They are aiming to provide 50,000 children with these bags which will include a tennis ball for play.

There will be a box clearly marked in the clubhouse for you to supply any old tennis balls and they are happy to take balls in any condition. The charity will then collect these balls once we have a good collection.
