Battle of the Brits event is back and this time with spectators
The Battle of the Brits events were a huge success during the Covid-19 crisis and now they are set to return with spectators for the first time.
Tournament director Jamie Murray has announced there will be a special Battle of the Brits, Scotland versus England event, at Aberdeen’s P&J Live Arena where he will compete alongside brother Andy Murray and face their Davis Cup teammate Dan Evans.
Super excited to announce the next instalment of @BattleofTheBrit : Scotland vs England.

While last year’s events were all held behind closed doors, this tournament is set to welcome fans back to the stands, with tickets on sale for what could be a homecoming tournament for the Murray’s in Scotland.
“I am super excited to bring live tennis to Scotland,” said Jamie Murray.
“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!”
To date, the Battle of the Brits events have raised over £100,000 for NHS charities.
