I am a 10 year old competitive tennis player who is passionate about tennis, environment, music, football, reading, writing and photography. I am on a mission to reduce wastage of tennis balls.
Support from the Tennis Community
Tennis is a game we all love but have we thought about how it is contributing to the environment crisis? One of the key solutions to solving these problems is to educate the future generations. I am very pleased to see that 10-year old Parth is using what he has learnt and is taking the initiative to show that we can all do something to help. I hope he can inspire all of us to put thoughts into action and together build a more sustainable future for our planet.

Almost all tennis players use new tennis balls at some point in the playing life. However, this highly disposable tennis product just goes in the trash can after a few uses. It gives me great confidence that students like Parth can engage the community and develop ideas to better recycle , reuse and repurpose tennis balls and cans to make a more sustainable future for us all.

All the industries have the duty and responsibility to become sustainable. That is what our world is demanding. Tennis cannot stay behind. Let’s all step forward.

The eco-responsible project the HK Tennis Community has been waiting for! Every Ball Matters will consist of providing a second life to tennis balls or recycle them!

Without doubt there is a huge problem in terms of what to do with used tennis balls. Currently, they create so much landfill. A real environmental issue that certainly needs addressing. What a fabulous idea to look into ways to recycle tennis balls!
