Murray, the three-time Grand Slam champion from Dunblane, will join fellow Brits at the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) National Tennis Centre in Roehampton from Sunday 20 December.
The four-day event, organised by his brother Jamie Murray and the LTA, has been dubbed the ‘Battle of the Brits Premier League of Tennis’ and is designed to give players some much-needed pre-season match practice in the buildup to the Australian Open – which is now set to start in early February.
Fans will be able to stream the action on the LTA’s social media channels and Youtube, with Dan Evans, Heather Watson, Emma Raducanu, Cam Norrie, Harriet Dart, Jay Clarke, Jodie Burrage and James Ward all signed up.
Jamie 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 added: ‘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.
This is the third event staged by Jamie at the NTC this year and will give his brother Andy the chance to test his body ahead of the new season.
Murray, who lost four of his seven competitive matches in 2020, ended his season in Cologne after a straight sets defeat to Fernando Verdasco but is ‘motivated’ to come back stronger next season.
