Old Balls  made new

We recognize that there are simply not enough sports balls in some environments; moreover there is a vast disparity in the quality of the sports balls. We're doing our bit to change that.

Our vision

We want to help create equal opportunities for all to be able to play with a ball. Therefore, we wish to recycle, broken, unwanted or “old balls” and make them new again.

Recyling

Broken, unwanted or “old balls” can be recyled, re-homed and reused

Up-cycling

We reuse the leather to produce a range of bespoke products, which are then sold to raise funds to buy new balls

Donating

For every 10 old balls donated to us we buy and donate a new ball

Old balls made new again

Each year; thousands of balls are simply thrown away – help us mitigate the negative impact discarded balls have on our environment by picking up one of our unique products made from such balls that would otherwise have been thrown away.

Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination. Sports is the game of lovers
