The Professional Squash Association (PSA) are delighted to announce that they have agreed to support United States-based organisation SquashCares which will see the newly created ReBound project align with the organisation in a mutually beneficial way that will result in balls being recycled and reused in order to benefit children with ADHD and autism.
SquashCares creates and distributes ‘ball blankets’ to provide sensory stimulation to children affected by ADHD and autism in a bid to provide mental health support for the community.
This latest initiative comes off the back of the successful inaugural ReBound collection drive at last month’s Delaware Investments US Open and will see the PSA donate the used, white squash balls leftover from PSA World Tour events featuring a glass court.
“We’re very happy to support programmes such as SquashCares,” said PSA CSR and Welfare Development Officer Adriana Olaya.
“We’re working collaboratively towards the same higher cause because we are all one big squash community and we share their concerns for the environment and want to give back to the community. At the PSA, we want to spread the word on such fantastic initiatives and efforts that charities such as this represent.”
