Frog Hollow Racquet Club Recycles Tennis Balls
A lot of tennis balls to be exact! We met with Harold Conway, Owner, of Frog Hollow Racquet Club last year when we were at USPTA Middle States Conference. Harold is an active member in both USPTA and PTR. He is also a National Tester for the PTR. Harold has chaired the High Performance committee for the Middle States section and the Minority Participation committee for the PTR, and sits on the USPTA Diversity committee and USTA/Middle States club owners committee.
Once Frog Hollow has gotten all the play they can get from the tennis ball felt, they recycle thousands of balls with reBounces each quarter through our National Recycling Campaign.
A transcript of the Frog Hollow Racquet Club unpaid testimonial video is here:
I say invest in the Green Tennis Machine. Because it is definitely going to allow you to do other things, with those monies that you were using to spend on balls to be able to do some other things like 10 and under program.
My name is Harold Conway, I am with Frog Hollow Racquet Club in Lansdale, PA. We run a 10 and under programming as well as a number of clinics, adult clinics, junior clinics, private lessons. Pretty much the full gamut.
Now when using the machine we actually feel like we are going to be saving at least one ball order per year and hopefully maybe more. And still be able to maintain the quality of our program.
Both hard and clay and we actually have a rotation schedule where we use the machine. And it’s allowed us to get, almost another 4 or 5 weeks, out of the balls out of the baskets after they become dead. We get another 4 to 5 weeks after we put them through the machine. That’s a savings for us, and it is important as a business owner to, you know, cut the expenses down and still maintain quality within the program.
