It is Easy and Beneficial for Clubs to Participate

Each time you rotate your lesson carts...

  • Box up the used balls. A medium HomeDepot box holds ~310
  • Use your existing shipper, or let us help you set up a shipping account to get discounted rates. Create and save a pre-made label
  • Print & apply the shipping label, ship the box(es) to 2nd-Bounces
  • Record your shipping cost as general expense to recycle materials
  • Receive charitable donation receipt* email for the donated balls 
* For tax accounting, club assigns fair market value for the quantity of balls sent to non-profits (as shown on receipt) (more info)

2nd-Bounces sorts balls received into play-worthy vs. recyclable

  • Using our patented Rebound Sorting process
  • We sell the ones good enough to sell back into the tennis market to cover our labor and expenses
  • Non-sellable balls are forwarded to our Non-profit partners in your club's name. You will always get at least 50% donation credit per batch
  • The Non-profit partner you selected will email you the receipt

Be promoted online by us and our various partners
