Tennis Ball Recycling

The Marshfield Tennis Club is proud to be at the forefront of the movement to recycle used tennis balls. MTC is one of the first 100 communities in the United States to provide this sustainability service. In the coming years, it will probably seem strange to come off a tennis court in the U.S. and not have one of these AD-IN bins to discard unwanted tennis balls.

An AD-IN tennis ball recycling bin has been installed at the Peter Igo tennis courts. 

Most tennis balls end up in landfills, but the new hardcourts at CourtSense at Tenafly Racquet Club feature courts cushioned from thousands of recycled tennis balls.
