Ball blankets are weighted blankets that provide sensory stimulation and a calming effect to people with autism. League member Scott Exo has a friend at PPS who works with developmentally disabled students and is handy with a sewing machine. She created a prototype using an initial batch of used balls he gave her, and now she's ready for more ! So, let's divert those old, tired squash balls from the landfill and help out a worthy cause. (Sorry, racquet balls aren't appropriate for this project).
A collection box has been set up behind Court 1 at Lloyd Athletic Club.
There are three League seasons per year: Winter, running from late January through early May, Summer, running from June through mid-August and Fall, running from late September through mid-December. League membership is seasonal. Before each season begins, participants pay a fee to the League for that season. Play takes place at several participating clubs in the Portland area which make their courts available free of charge at specific times on Wednesday evenings when a season is underway.
