What can you do with them?
I wish I had an answer for the empty cans, but I don’t. Some people must have a use for them, because they sell on EBay for $.50 to $1 per can!
Does anyone have a creative solution to make use of them?
For me, I save up my once/twice used tennis balls and give them to Spike Gonzales to use in his programs teaching kids. Everyone must know someone who works in the field and can add some more use to the balls we discard.
Or if you know someone who has dogs who like to chase/chew tennis balls, a bag full is usually welcome.
Up north where we have a ball machine, the bag of used balls can be significant. So disposing of them becomes even more challenging.
Any other ideas on re-purposing the cans or the balls?
Longboat Key Tournament
This week, Chuck Kinyon and I travel north to outside of Sarasota to play in the very nice CAT II event on Longboat Key. This is my last event in the 70s (playing doubles only here) and Chuck and I squeezed out a seed as one of the #5s.
It is a strong field, full at 16 teams + the tournament has a record number of sign-ups at a whopping 326 players from around the country. Full the full list of seeds and the draws (when they come out later today), just click HERE
