The Battle of the Sexes (PG)

The second film in a series of iconic sports films we’re screening in the Buxton Working Men’s Club.
This is the original documentary that led to the dramatised remake in 2017.
It is about the epic battle between Billie Jean King and Robby Riggs; it brilliantly charts the setting up of the Women’s Tennis Association agains the background of 1970’s chauvanism and glass ceilings.
