The event has been organised by Jamie Murray and will take place at the LTA’s National Tennis Centre in Roehampton from 23-28 June.
UK viewers can watch on Amazon Prime and on Eurosport and Tennis Channel in the US.
The tournament, which of course will be subject to Government guidelines, will be behind closed doors, and the LTA has been active as part of a UK Sport working group advising the Government on the development of the guidelines.
Speaking at the launch of the event, Jamie Murray said: “The last few months have been incredibly challenging times for everyone, and we see this event as our way of giving back. A lot of work has gone in to make sure this could happen and we are very excited to be able to bring an action packed week of tennis, while raising valuable funds for NHS heroes to say thank you for the amazing work they have done.
“I’m really excited to be putting on Schroders Battle of the Brits and for the first time bringing together the current generation of British male players to compete against one another while raising significant funds for charity. I am particularly grateful to our broadcast partner here in the UK, Amazon Prime Video, for enabling this event to happen.”
Scott Lloyd, LTA Chief Executive, said: “The LTA is looking forward to bringing tennis back into people’s lives this summer, and are excited about events like this inspiring fans to get involved in our sport and pick up a racket.
“We’ve been discussing this event with Jamie for some time and support his efforts, and those of others, to put on events as part of a co-ordinated plan in returning to elite competition. We are represented on the UK Sport working group advising Government on the necessary protocols for the return to elite sport and when the Government is able to announce this phase of eased restrictions for behind-closed-doors events we will work with Jamie’s team to undertake the necessary preparations and risk assessments. The LTA is looking forward to bringing tennis back into people’s lives this summer and are excited about events like this inspiring fans to get involved in our sport and pick up a racket.”
