What is the format of the Battle of the Brits Team Tennis

 

 

The teams will go head-to-head in a mix of singles, doubles and mixed doubles matches. The teams will accumulate points from individual matches, racing to reach a target of 60 points, which will see them crowned the Battle of the Brits Team champions.

Reprising his role as Tournament Director, Jamie Murray said: “We’ve got a brilliant line up of the best male and female players in the country going head to head every day. It’s going to be ultra-competitive but also a lot of fun. The team spirit is already there, and nobody wants to lose to their friends. Despite the fact we have to play behind closed doors, the good news is that fans will be able to follow all the action from home. We can’t wait to get started on Monday”

The event is supported by St. James’s Place, who have generously pledged to donate £100 for every ace hit during the tournament to NHS Charities Together to add to the £250,000 already raised by their community.

Scott Lloyd, Chief Executive of the LTA, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Jamie on this event and helping build the profile of British tennis over this summer. We’ve been working hard to make sure the National Tennis Centre can host these events safely and securely, and we’re committed to doing all we can to help our professional players continue to play competitive matches in these unique circumstances.”

 

Over the course of the week there will be 60 matches in total – 40 singles and 20 doubles matches. Players from the Union Jacks and British Bulldogs will face off across the 7 days to gain points for their team, with the first team to reach 60 points being crowned the eventual champions. That means that every match counts and throughout the event individual matches will be worth between 1 and 5 points.

But no two matches are the same and as the week progresses the stakes will only get higher, with points available per match increasing each day. This will eventually build up to a ‘Super Sunday’ where there will be 10 matches with a total of 29 points up for grabs.

 

Team Selection

Each team member must be nominated for 2 matches across the week. The first match must be between Monday and Wednesday, and the second between Thursday and Sunday.

Players can only play a maximum of 2 matches per day, but can only compete in 1 match of any discipline – Singles, Doubles and Mixed.

Teams must make their nominations for the next day’s play by 7:00pm each day.

 

How will matches be scored?

Singles matches will be played as a best of 3 sets format, with Ad scoring and a 10pt match tie-breaks. Changeover times will be 60 seconds with 120 seconds at the end of sets.

Doubles matches will also be scored as a best of 3 sets but without Ad scoring. They will also have a 10pt match tie-break at 1 set all and changeover time will be 45 seconds with 90 seconds at the end of sets.
