Genesis of Reballs

COVID-19 allowed Jonathan Scyboz and his tennis friends to meet. At the end of a game, they happened to share the same observation. 

The balls they had just hit would end up being thrown away without being recycled, nor reused. Therefor, they have  decided to react to this lack of awarness by bringing together a network of people. This network consists of ALEXANDRE LE THIEC known for its recycling expertise and its innovative solutions, as well as SYLVAIN GAENG and its communication agency B+G, B Corp certified to give life to Reballs.

A new game has begun, whilst playing tennis we can now give the tennis balls a second life.

Reballs is born.
