Break the Love's mission is to create more access to tennis, empowering anyone to be an athlete.
What is Break the Love?
Break the Love® is an online platform that enables all levels of tennis players to learn, play, and compete virtually and locally -- we empower anyone to partake in quality physical activity and form personal connections in their communities through the game of tennis.
Here's the Problem: the recreational tennis experience is inconvenient & non-inclusive resulting in over 14M players not having access to the sport because:
- 90% of tennis programming is offline and difficult to discover and book
- Member-only tennis clubs and country clubs are exclusive and cost-prohibitive
- Organized programs for recreational players are lacking and difficult to find locally
Break the Love® Solves this Problem through an online destination that offers recreational tennis players & enthusiasts:
- Low-cost ways to play utilizing public courts and local community
- Opportunities for all levels of players to learn, improve, play, and compete
- An easy way to discover and access all tennis services online
There are 14.5M recreational tennis players in the US who are currently looking for opportunities to play the game and that number is quickly growing. With tennis being one of the few social-distant friendly outdoor activities, now more than ever before more people are picking up the game, and players are looking to play recreational and competitive tennis and engage with their local community through the sport.
About our Funding
We are seeking $25K to fund the development of our iOS & Android app.
Break the Love's co-founders, Trisha Goyal & Tess Szymanski are uniquely qualified to bring the world of tennis online. We bring product, brand, sales, business development, sports, and fitness experience from ESPN, NBC Sports, Equinox, GIPHY, and Huffington Post. As tennis players who didn't know how to continue playing past high-school and college, we're building a solution to problems we've experienced first hand.
