Wilson and Billie Jean King have partnered to create three exclusive products that celebrate the new film “Battle of the Sexes”, a biographical sports drama which tells the amazing story of the historic 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell).
After King defeated Riggs in three sets, she founded the Women’s Sports Foundation to ensure that all girls get access to sports. The match, billed as the Battle of the Sexes, became one of the most popular televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.
Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
Wilson will donate 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this special “Battle of the Sexes” inspired gear to support the Women’s Sports Foundation and its programs.
I love the purple racket! I hope to get one soon. It’s my favorite color.
