Philadelphia Freedoms

By Patrick Mondout

The Philadelphia Freedoms were one of the original 16 World Team Tennis franchises and one of the most prominent, with Billie Jean King as player/coach.

Elton John was a big fan of King and co-wrote (with Bernie Taupin, of course) the song Philadelphia Freedom for her.* It went to number one in March of 1975, which is more than can be said of the team, which disbanded after the 1974 season.


* If you still have your 45 of Philadelphia Freedom, check for the "Dedicated to B.J.K" reference.
