Own a piece of history with the Battle of the Sexes Limited Edition Duffel, a replica of the Wilson red duffel featured in the new film featuring Emma Stone as Billie Jean King and Steve Carell as Bobby Riggs. This duffel features a primary compartment to store your tennis gear and shoes, as well as a side pocket to house any smaller valuables or items you may carry around. Designed with the classic Wilson red and white look, this duffel brings style and functionality to the tennis court. In the spirit of the match that is widely considered a milestone for public acceptance of women’s tennis and their athletic ability, Wilson will donate 50% of the proceeds to the Women’s Sports Foundation – an organization founded by Billie Jean King herself to encourage and create leaders by providing girls access to sports.

About the movie: In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.  As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.  The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed.  And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue).  Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
