Break the Love (BTL) is a vibrant community that helps tennis enthusiasts of all levels connect with each other and organize group-based tennis activities at local parks and clubs. Founded with the aim of facilitating these connections, BTL is led by passionate organizers and tennis professionals who dedicate their expertise to helping players discover and participate in exciting tennis opportunities.
The goal of the project was to enhance the user experience for players on the Break the Love platform. This included the ability for players to easily search for and sign up for events, connect with coaches and other players, and access relevant information about the sport.
Additionally, the platform was redesigned to include an interface for coaches to manage scores and reports, as well as a CMS for Break the Love staff to post events and articles and manage the overall content on the platform.
We completed a comprehensive design system overhaul that included improvements to the UI, visuals, and content. Additionally, we improved the structure and code of the platform.
We started by identifying the objectives and gaps in the existing website to create a checklist for the website infrastructure. This helped us determine the technologies needed to close these gaps and develop wireframes as a foundation for the new designs of the platform.

It features an event search experience that helps players explore, sort, and filter upcoming events and activities, and a Break the Love blog with articles on tennis tips, news, and other relevant content.
