Break the Love was founded by Trisha Goyal who moved to a new place and wanted to start playing tennis again as a way to connect with new people and play more regularly after taking a hiatus from it as a busy working adult.
As part of the commitment to the sport, Break the Love, the next-gen social sports platform, and Tory Sport presented a celebration of Women’s History Month featuring a panel of tennis pros including Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Jessica Pegula, CiCi Bellis, Taylor Townsend, and Christina McHale. The event took place at The Miami Edition.
The panel was moderated by Marissa E. Hill and discussed topics facing women in sports including, sexism, ageism, higher education opportunities, sports injuries, and investing.
The two days of programming commemorated the 50th Anniversary of Title IX which gave women equal rights and access to sports and prevented sex-based discrimination. Despite the progress made over the last five decades, today only 2 in 5 girls play sports due to barriers like price, safety, and space. 55% of Break the Love’s members identify as a female which is why they are committed to creating more programs for girls and women to access sports for a lifetime.
