As a lifelong tennis player, I realized in 2016 that our sport was incredibly wasteful and was unable to find a place to recycle my used tennis balls. In tennis, you open a can of balls, play with them for an hour and a half, and then you toss them out. I did a little research and was stunned by what I discovered. I realized that there’s got to be something we could do about it,” he said. In 2016, along with my son Ryan, we founded RecycleBalls, a nonprofit that makes it easy for tennis clubs and fitness centers around the country to recycle their used balls.

With the passion of players nationwide, we built a nationwide network of partner facilities in nearly every state. In just a few years, the program has been so successful that Chicago-based Wilson Sporting Goods, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of tennis equipment, signed on as the program’s lead sponsor.
