Break the Love’s partnership with American Express marks the newest business deal for Trisha Goyal’s next-gen social sports platform. American Express cardmembers will have the chance to gain access to 10,000 tennis and pickleball court reservations in New York City, just in time for the US Open season.
American Express cardmembers rejoice! Break the Love has partnered with the well-known credit card service company ahead of the 2022 US Open Tennis Championships in order to provide American Express card holders with a love of racquet sports with the opportunity to play for free in New York City. The deal between both companies enables access to 10,000 reservations at more than 500 tennis and pickleball courts in the Big Apple. But, you must have an American Express Card Membership handy.
Break the Love Founder and CEO Trisha Goyal’s mission has always centered around giving the next generation of tennis enthusiasts an entryway to practice. Now with the organization’s newest collaboration, Break the Love appears to continue to help make this a reality. “…by partnering with American Express we are thrilled to be able to expand access especially during the excitement of the US Open. Break the Love is excited to be a part of an epic summer of tennis with Amex,” says Goyal.
American Express is also thrilled with their newest partnership. The company’s chief marketing officer, Elizabeth Rutledge, expressed, “We’re excited to welcome back tennis fans from around the world to the US Open, and to bring some of that experience to hundreds of courts in the greater NYC area through our new partnership with Break the Love.”
She added, “With tennis surging in popularity, and millions of people picking up the sport for the first time, we’re thrilled to work with our partners to connect new fans to the game.”
Break the Love has continued to boast a list of business achievements, including their Equinox x Hamptons club alliance and partnerships with other well-established brands such as Tory Sport and Wilson Sporting Goods. Earlier this year, Break the Love received over $2.5 million in seed funding. “I started Break the Love in the spirit of really helping the everyday athlete access sport by removing all of the hassle and intimidation in playing a sport,” said Goyal to Athletech News in an exclusive CEO Corner feature.
If you’re planning to be in the New York City area this August and September, head over to the “American Express Racquet Club” section of Break the Love website for more information on how to sign up for this special offer.
