Battle of the Brits returns with the Premier League of Tennis
The LTA and Jamie Murray are teaming up again to offer British Elite men’s and women’s tennis players some enhanced pre-season match-play opportunities in the form of a one-off league – The Battle of the Brits Premier League Tennis, staged at the LTA’s National Tennis Centre in Roehampton from 20th December.
This is the third event staged by Jamie and staged at the NTC this year. The domestic-only match-play league is designed to help British players prepare for the 2021 season with the chance to turn their practice matches into competitive opportunities which fans will be able to watch via live streaming.
When is it taking place?
The four-day event (20 – 23 December) will feature 16 players (both men and women) playing in a 30-match league format, that will see each player play at least once across the four days.
Murray said: “All the players were keen to get the chance to test themselves before the season begins. It’s been such an unusual year, with so many disruptions that any competitive tennis people can get is welcome. Even in pre-season nobody likes to lose to their friends, so we’re expecting some tight matches.”
LTA CEO Scott Lloyd said: “We want to do all we can to help British players prepare for the season ahead. Whilst we wait for the calendar to be finalised, we’ve got the opportunity to let players play competitively at the NTC. Despite being indoors, the matches will be on a similar type of court surface as at Melbourne and using the same balls to try and replicate conditions in Australia as closely as we can. Hopefully the players will make the most of the opportunity to get some competitive matches under their belt.”
The Battle of the Brits Premier League of Tennis will take place between 20-23 December.
