Champions Tour Tennis Comes To Scotland
by ATP Staff|
Tennis legends are returning to Scotland this summer to compete at the Brodies Invitational at Gleneagles - a two-day tennis extravaganza which, for the first time, will be part of the prestigious ATP Champions Tour.
Brodies LLP and the Gleneagles Hotel will jointly host the event on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 June, which will see stars of the game battling it out to be crowned the Brodies Invitational champion. They’ll also be sharing the court with Scotland’s most promising junior players and helping to raise money for Maggie’s cancer care centres and Cancer Research UK.
Among those showing off their skills at the tournament are former British No.1 Tim Henman, former World No. 1 Mats Wilander, former World No. 4 and reigning Brodies Invitational Champion Thomas Enqvist, former World No. 19 Xavier Malisse and Colin Fleming, a former Wimbledon doubles quarter-finalist and current National Coach for Scotland. The legends will compete in four matches across the two days.
“I’m really looking forward to competing in the Brodies Invitational again, helping to build on the success of last year’s hugely popular tournament and putting Scotland firmly on the map as a venue for world-class tennis,” said Henman. “We’ve got a great line-up of players again this year at Gleneagles, who will showcase a highly-entertaining mix of skills and competitive tennis that is sure to appeal to sports fans of all ages.”
The Brodies Invitational at Gleneagles will also feature a family fun tennis session hosted by former Fed Cup Captain Judy Murray as part of her Tennis on the Road programme. The 32 parents and 32 children who take part will be the winners of a draw open to “early bird” ticketholders.
“I'm delighted to be involved with the Brodies Invitational tournament again. It's great to have top class tennis in Scotland and last year’s event was exciting, fun, and very popular with the crowd,” said Murray. “It is a chance to see some of the world’s legends in action, to showcase Scotland's best young prospects and to give many parents and children the chance to try tennis through my fun family event.”
