With all the negative news about global warming and its causes, the squash community should take heart that SquashCares, founded in 2014 by Sydney Soloway, collected more than 2,000 squash balls with its recycling program this season to keep dead balls out of landfills. Since SquashCares started in September 2014, it has collected over 18,200 dead squash balls.
The ball recycling program will continue this coming season, and receive an upgrade in the form of collection boxes at facilities that request them (email email@example.com to sign up). The SquashCares equipment collection program will ramp up this season at junior events to support Haiti’s emerging squash program.
Balls and equipment for recycling may be still be mailed directly to:
