Did You Know?

  • Each year approximately 300 million balls are produced, which contributes to roughly 32.3 million pounds of waste in the form of rubber that is not biodegradable.
  • These tennis balls sit in the landfill for a long time and produce methane (CH4) a greenhouse gas that remains in the atmosphere for approximately 9-15 years.
  • Methane is over 20 times more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide (CO2) resulting in being a major factor in global warming!
  • The tennis clubs in and around metro west area in MA replace approximately 15,000 to 20,000 tennis balls each year, which will result in over one ton of landfill waste annually per club.
