Tennis Day

The annual "Tennis Day" took place at Ariake Tennis no Mori on 23 September 2007.

GSA is at the event every year collecting used tennis balls to donate to the tennis ball reuse program and this year we collected an amazing 8,000 balls and 40 rackets.

The balls will be distributed to schools around the country and the rackets will either be sent to developing countries to give those children a sporting chance or sold through the tennis support center to cover the packaging and distribution costs of sending the rackets abroad.

GSA also put up displays and exhibited RECYCL'art at the event, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Among the RECYCL'art exhibits were art pieces made using former pro tennis player and GSA Director, Shuzo Matsuoka's tennis shoes and Ai Sugiyama's racket.
