Story

Throughout June 2019, I will be embarking on a monumental tennis challenge in order to raise awareness of, and raising funds for, Mental Health in the UK.

There are approximately 5 million people in the UK, of working age, who have suffered / are suffering with Mental Health, and I intend to hit a tennis ball for each and every one of you.

Playing for 8-10 hours a day, on EVERY day in June (that's 30 consecutive days), I will hit 200,000 shots, sending the ball travelling a total distance of 5 million metres.

I will be visiting 46 venues throughout the UK including schools, parks, clubs, and ATP/WTA events. My final shots will be hit at the AELTC Community Sports ground, Wimbledon.

Every day will be a tennis festival, open to all to watch or participate.

One in five of all people in the UK have a disability.

Of those that have taken up tennis, 80% say that they feel happier, healthier and less isolated.

Breakpoint 2019 aims to raise funds that will allow anyone with a disability the opportunity to play tennis for free.

Funds raised will help expand the 'I Play 30 ' disability tennis programme operated by Bright Ideas for Tennis.
