Operation Christmas Child

Tuesday, October 10, 2017


If you or anyone you know has any used tennis balls surplus to your requirements, in any condition please can you donate them to a good cause. 

Throughout the year players, Coaches and Clubs have been collecting and donating their used balls. They are stored and then bagged up, and in mid-November we give them to Samaritans Purse, “Operation Christmas Child” for their shoe box appeal.

This is where a shoe box is filled with items for children in other countries that would rarely see a toy. One tennis ball is always excitedly received and well used for many months; as a real prized toy to play with, for the entire family.

There is never enough!  

I am hoping to pass on over 2000 Tennis balls again this year and so any extras you can collect and give would be greatly appreciated  –

So if you can spread the word?

 If anyone has any used tennis balls can they be donated, as soon as suits but no later than 1st December
