The stage is set and the now the draws have taken place for ‘Schroders Battle of the Brits‘ tournament that’s taking place later this month at The National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, London. The event will not only bring much-missed live tennis to fans but also aims to raise a minimum of £100,000 for NHS Charities Together.
The event has been organised by seven-times Grand Slam doubles and mixed doubles champion Jamie Murray, alongside Schroders and Amazon Prime Video. The eight male singles players will compete in two groups that have been named after British tennis legends, Tim Henman and Greg Rusedki.
Former British and world number one Andy Murray will face Kyle Edmund in the Henman Group on his return to competitive tennis after seven months. Liam Broady and James Ward will also compete in this group while current British number one Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie, Jay Clarke and Jack Draper will all play in the Rusedski Group.
Competing in the Paul Hutchins doubles group are Liam Broady & Cam Norrie, Dan Evans & Lloyd Glasspool and Jamie Murray & Neal Skupski. Kyle Edmund & Jack Draper, Dom Inglot & Jay Clarke, and Joe Salisbury & Jonny O’Mara will play in the Cathie Sabin group.
