The Battle Of The Sexes

It was a match made in heaven: she was the darling of American tennis, an outspoken activist against sexism in sport and society and he was the charismatic, fast talking, hustling chauvinist showman. Combining scintillating match footage with contemporary news reports, stylised dramatic reconstructions, and interviews with key contributors, journalists, and fans, Battle of the Sexes tells the story of the events leading up to the 1973 tennis match between retired men’s champ Bobby Riggs and women’s Wimbledon winner Billie Jean King. A drama set against the backdrop of 1970s America and a country undergoing a huge social revolution as women struggled to break free from traditional gender stereotypes, the King v Riggs match – and the unlikely friendship between two people with entirely different agendas – captured the imaginations of people around the world and changed sport forever!
