( we are based in Lincoln, so local collection is from any LN postcode )

We Buy Your Used Tennis Balls In Batches Of 250 For £37.50 ( 15p per ball )

2. We Pay 15p Per Ball – You send in 250 balls in one of our reusable sacks. We pay £37.50 (15p per ball) and cover all shipping costs.

In addition to standard tennis balls, we can also take trainer balls, padel balls, low pressure / mini balls ( only the dual coloured balls NOT the standard yellow coloured low pressure / mini balls ( i.e. green dot / red dot / stage 1 / stage 2 ) Etc.  ( all subject to any of them not being in any of the conditions we do not take )

 So long as the balls are not weather damaged, or are very discoloured, or have damaged / frayed nap, or have been worn down to practically threadbare, then we can take them.

i.e. If the balls have been left out in all weathers, they will be weather damaged and / or will have become discoloured.

i.e. If the balls have been used to death, then the nap will be have become practically threadbare or will have become frayed.

i.e. Balls that have been used on very dirty hard courts will typically have become very discoloured by the dirt / moss etc on the courts.

We can not take any balls that have been used on clay courts, as they will have become very discoloured red / brown. (Ball used on artificial clay surfaces should be fine, provided they have not become too discoloured)

If any of the balls are in any of the above conditions, please don't put them into the sack.

Also, we can not take the standard yellow coloured low pressure / mini balls. ( i.e. green dot / red dot / stage 1 / stage 2 Etc. ) The dual coloured low pressure / mini balls are fine, provided they are in good condition )

 We have found the most convenient process is :

 When you have 250 or more balls available, simply let us know and we will send you out a reusable courier sacks(s).

 Once you let us know that the sack has been packed, we will arrange for the courier to call and collect.

 We will make a bank transfer for you one the balls have been received and sorted.

Once tennis balls have lost their pressure, they are no longer suitable for tennis and are usually just thrown away, typically ending up in landfill sites. Since 2010 we have been offering a much better solution, as we recycle these used tennis balls, giving them a new lease of life...

The main part of our business consists of the repressurisation of tennis balls, so that they can be used for playing tennis again. Of course, not all of the balls will repressurise to the correct pressure, so these balls are given to the various charities that we support, as shown below.

We are particularly proud of our charity based recycling. This involves the packaging up of balls to donate to various charities, including Save The Children,  NSPCC, Barnardo's, Under Privileged Nurseries / Schools, Children's Homes, Rescue Centres, RSPCA, Police Dogs, Guide Dogs, Etc. Etc.

We also make regular cash donations to the following charities :

ANCHOR, APLA, Blue Elephant, CALM, Cancer Research, Children’s Hospices, EOL Hospices, Various Food banks, Make A Wish, Macmillan Cancer Support, Make A Wish, NSPCC. ROMPA, RSPCA, Tennis First, Tennis For Free, Tennis Fundraising, The Alzheimer's Society , The Brain Tumour Charity, The British Heart Foundation, The National Autistic Society, The Parkinsons Disease Charity, The Stroke Association, The Tennis Foundation, Veterans Lifeline, Etc, Etc.

Recycaball - Proud  to be helping tennis become a greener and more

 eco-friendly sport, by giving used tennis balls a new lease of life !

Below is a photo of the conditions of tennis balls that we do not take, ( i.e. weather damaged / very discoloured, yellow minis, Etc ) please do not put any balls in this condition into the sacks.



Hi Everyone,

Sorry we are a little late with this quarters update, but we wanted to get our accounts finalised and registered with Companies House and HMRC before posting our final figures for this financial year.

We are very pleased to confirm that over the past 12 months we have donated a total of  £9,837.00  to the charities that we support.

 We donated to the following charities :
ANCHOR, APLA, Blue Elephant, Bright Ideas For Tennis, CALM, Cancer Research, Children’s Hospices, EOL Hospices, Make A Wish, Macmillan Cancer Support, Make A Wish, NSPCC. ROMPA, RSPCA, Tennis First, Tennis For Free, Tennis Fundraising, The Alzheimer's Society , The Brain Tumour Charity, The British Heart Foundation, The National Autistic Society, The Parkinson’s Disease Charity, The Stroke Association, The Tennis Foundation, Various Food Banks, Veterans Lifeline, Etc.

Not included in the above figures is a £500.00 donation which we just made to the D.E.C Ukraine & also to The Red Cross humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine appeal.

We Also over the past 12 months donated over 7,000 balls to the following charities :

Under Privileged Nurseries, Schools, Children's Homes, Rescue Centres, Dogs Trust, RSPCA, Police Dogs, Guide Dogs, Armed Forces Dogs.

I would like to say a big thank you for your continued support, as without you, these charitable donations would simply not be possible.

As I mentioned in my previous email, I thought I had a couple of health issues just to being over 60, but I was sent for a brain scan by my doctor, when they did the scan they found a tumour, so I explained that it would be difficult for me to take balls to the tip and asked if everyone could please be very diligent with the balls being sent and not put in balls that will possibly be rejected.

Also, because of the above, it is taking me a little longer to sort through all the sacks that come in, so it is now approximately 14 days from the date the sack is collected until the bank transfer is completed.
