This summer, Robyn Moore, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, will aim to hit 200,000 tennis shots as she takes on the Breakpoint 2019 challenge to raise awareness of and raise funds for mental health. Supported by the charity Bright Ideas for Tennis, Robyn will play for a minimum of 8 hours per day for 30 consecutive days, hitting the ball 5 million metres to represent 1 metre for every adult individual in the UK who currently experiences mental ill health. Her tennis shots will be recorded by Swing™, an app that will track every ball she hits.
