Well, here we are again. It’s hard to believe that another year has passed already. Eric (huge guy in picture) and I arrived a few days ago and are hot on the sales trail showing off our Green Tennis Machine – the only tennis ball repressurization system designed specifically for tennis pros/facilities. The beauty of the Coachella Valley continues to warm my skin and my soul; I feel like a snake shedding winter skin (I guess that would have to be some type of indigenous desert diamond back.) We are here for an amazing 3 weeks – did I mention I love my job? Cannon and Bill said it is in the 30’s back home so I know they are anxious to join us.
The BNP Paribas Open main draw starts Wednesday and should be another amazing tourney. Once again we are partnering with BNP Paribas, Indian Wells Tennis Garden and FedEx Ground to raise tennis ball recycling awareness. In addition to our tennis ball recycling promotion for spectators, we have added the “Rally, Roundup & Recycle” campaign. We have a goal of collecting 100,000 tennis balls via the help of Southern California clubs/organizations and are almost there. If you are coming to the tourney please remember to bring your old tennis balls so you can exchange them for new ones! For every 6 balls donated, you will receive a can of new ones. The promotion will be held both weekends of the tournament so come see us at the booth (Look for the FedEx truck. Can’t miss it.)
Everyone is starting to arrive. Can’t wait to see all our wonderful friends and anxious to make new ones.
