Level The Playing Field: Billie Jean King Revealed As Special Guest Speaker

March 9, 2021

iSPORTCONNECT and the International Tennis Federation are thrilled to reveal that Billie Jean King, a legendary figure in tennis and a true champion of equality, will be appearing as a guest speaker for our upcoming online global forum ‘Level The Playing Field’.

Forming part of the ITF’s Advantage All gender equality strategy, the joint event alongside iSPORTCONNECT will offer true insight into creating a fairer sporting world and advancing gender equality through proactive, solution focused discussions.

We are therefore over the moon to be able to welcome a woman who has been a figurehead for so much change and positivity throughout her esteemed career, both on and off the court, and cannot wait to be able to get further thoughts and perspectives from Billie Jean on the day.

Billie Jean King in conversation with Catherine Whitaker will serve as the event’s curtain raiser on Monday, April 12th, and interested parties can register interest now by emailing

Forming part of the global forum, there will also be two separate panel sessions as well as the opportunity for networking and further engagement between those in attendance.

There will be much more to come as we gear up to ‘Level The Playing Field’ over the next month, with more speakers to be announced in due course.
