Britain's best tennis players battle it out for glory

In 2020, amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Battle Of The Brits got into full swing. The live tennis series is the brainchild of professional player Jamie Murray. Due to the lack of tournament action during the national lockdowns, he gathered many of Britain’s best players to participate in the fundraising competitions.

The first event, Schroders Battle Of The Brits, was held in July 2020 at the LTA’s National Tennis Centre in Roehampton. The six-day men’s singles and doubles tournament, which was the UK’s first to be held behind closed doors, brought much-missed live tennis to fans while raising money for NHS charities. Dan Evans was crowned the singles champion, while Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski claimed the doubles title.

That event was so popular, a second one featuring men’s and women’s combined teams, was held a few weeks later. Called St James’s Place Battle Of The Brits, it saw players like Dan Evans, Heather Watson, Andy Murray, Katie Boulter and more come together as the Union Jacks. They played against the British Bulldogs, which were comprised of Kyle Edmund, Johanna Konta, Cameron Norrie and Harriet Dart, among others. In the final results, the Union Jacks lost to the British Bulldogs by a score of 56 – 63.

In December 2020, a third competition – The Battle Of The Brits Premier League Of Tennis – took place boasting men’s and women’s singles events. The one-off league tournament held at the National Tennis Centre saw Dan Evans, Andy Murray, Heather Watson, James Ward and Cameron Norrie along with LTA Pro Scholarship players Emma Raducanu, Harriet Dart, Jay Clarke and Jodie Burrage hit the courts. When all was said and done, Heather Watson and Anton Matusevich came out victorious.

On 26 February 2021, Jamie Murray, back as the tournament director, announced he’s assembling many of the country’s top men’s and women’s players again for The Battle Of The Brits: Scotland v England to be held at P&J Live arena in Aberdeen on 21 – 22 December 2021. The fourth event in The Battle Of The Brits series, it’s set to showcase both Murray brothers while giving Scottish tennis fans the chance to see them play on home turf. 

“I am super excited to bring live tennis to Scotland,” said Jamie Murray about the upcoming event. “Andy and I have had some incredible experiences competing as part of Team GB in Davis Cup in Scotland but to be able to represent Scotland is such a unique opportunity for us especially against England.” He also added that audiences can expect “an amazing two days of tennis and entertainment for all the family.”

The Battle Of The Brits: Scotland v England will encompass six matches (four singles and two doubles) to be played over an intense 48-hour period. A full line-up of players is yet to be released.

So far The Battle Of The Brits live tennis events have raised over £100,000 for NHS charities.
