This summer, Robyn Moore, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, will aim to hit 200,000 tennis shots as she takes on the Breakpoint 2019 challenge to raise awareness of and raise funds for mental health. Supported by the charity Bright Ideas for Tennis, Robyn will play for a minimum of 8 hours per day for 30 consecutive days, hitting the ball 5 million metres to represent 1 metre for every adult individual in the UK who currently experiences mental ill health. Her tennis shots will be recorded by SwingTM, an app that will track every ball she hits.
Acknowledging the benefits that tennis has for mental health, funds raised from Breakpoint 2019 will expand the Bright Ideas for Tennis programme, I Play 30, that provides free sessions to all disability groups throughout the UK, with a particular ongoing focus on mental health.
Breakpoint 2019 will begin on 1 June 2019 in Robyn’s home county of Hampshire and continue to over 46 venues across the UK. Each day will be a festival of tennis - open to the public to watch and participate. Through the support of the LTA, Robyn will play in parks, schools, tennis clubs, community centres and at some of the ATP and WTA grass court season tournaments in the build up to The Championships, Wimbledon. Robyn will hit her final shots at the All England Club Community Sports Ground on 30 June, the day before Wimbledon 2019 commences.
