Robyn was treated to a Wimbledon courtesy car from the All England Lawn Tennis Club to the community sports ground courts, a once in a life time start to the final day. Next, as if things couldn’t get any better, she hit against Wimbledon Champion Pat Cash. Pat, the 1987 Champion, opened up about his mental health struggles and shared how impressed he was about Robyn’s bravery to speak up and raise awareness. He gifted Robyn a signed headband! We are very grateful for the time that Pat gave to us especially the day before Wimbledon when time is tight.
Sarah Voysey was also on site taking snaps of the day. Sarah has been a tremendous support to Breakpoint 2019 and has given up her time to capture the highlights. We are so grateful and glad that you could be a part of our journey. Her photos will be hosted on our website and shared across our social media, please be sure to visit her website here for more details and to book her for your next event, she’s got our vote!
Robyn was surrounded by family and friends to count down the final shots before she dropped to her knees in relief and happiness to have succeeded on so many levels. Not only did she hit 200,000 shots, play every single day in June, raise funds, visit 47 venues, meet a host of new people, she also proved to herself just how strong she is and she should be very proud at the awareness she has raised for mental health and how good tennis can be for your mental wellbeing. A huge well done from all of us at Bright Ideas for Tennis.
Finally, thank you to Wimbledon for their continued support throughout Breakpoint 2019.
