Breakpoint 2019 is coming to Cambridge Lawn Tennis Club and Haslingfield Tennis Club on Sunday 23 June 2019. This day will be a festival of tennis – open to all to spectate, or participate.
Breakpoint 2019 is a charity fundraiser to raise awareness of mental health issues in the UK and to promote the benefits of tennis to all disability groups. The festival of tennis will raise funds to help expand the delivery of ‘I play 30’ free tennis sessions, which are activity sessions designed for adults and children with learning, sensory, and physical disabilities, but with a particular focus to those experiencing problems with mental health.

Buckden, Cambridge, Ely, Haslingfield, Great Shelford and Wisbech.
During June, the Breakpoint 2019 tour will visit 46 venues throughout the UK, encompassing parks, clubs, schools, universities and SEN schools in England, Scotland and Wales.
Robyn Moore, who suffers from PTSD, is aiming to hit 200,000 tennis shots in 30 days. In doing so, she will need to play for 8-10 hours per day for 30 consecutive days, which averages out at one shot every 4 seconds.
