Andy & Jamie Murray

Andy Murray set to play singles and doubles at Battle of the Brits

Tournament Director Jamie Murray has revealed his provisional schedule for this December’s Schroders Battle of the Brits – Scotland versus England, with Aberdeen set for two days of top class men’s tennis matches at the P&J Live.

Sir Andy Murray has not played in Scotland since 2016 but will make up for lost time by playing in all three sessions across both Tuesday 21 December and Wednesday 22 December, including teaming up to play doubles with his brother Jamie.

The two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will take on Englishman Dan Evans in the second singles match in Tuesday’s evening session. They are due to follow in-form Scotsman Cameron Norrie against England’s Kyle Edmund, who is returning to the court after nearly 14 months off with a knee injury. The 26-year-old former Australian Open semi-finalist has not played since October 2020 and underwent surgery on his left knee in March this year.

A bumper Wednesday afternoon will see Jamie Murray and Jonny O’Mara lead Scotland out in the doubles against England’s pedigree pairing of Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski before Andy Murray returns to the court to take on Edmund in what is likely to be one of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the event.

On Wednesday evening, Norrie plays Evans, the man he recently overtook as British No.1, before the Murray brothers join forces for Scotland in what promises to be a showstopping finale against Salisbury and Skupski.

Please note that the event schedule is subject to change.

With anticipation building for Schroders Battle of the Brits – Scotland versus England, only a handful of tickets remain as Aberdonians snap up this rare opportunity to see Scotland’s greatest ever players pit their talents against the best male tennis players from England. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.

“We’re bringing the best players from the whole of the UK so I expect the matches to be super competitive and really high quality,” said Jamie Murray. “Andy, Cam, Johnny and I are all desperate to get out there in front of the Aberdeen crowd and show what them what we can do. I know the English guys are really excited too, so there it’s going to be lots of fun as well as everyone going all out to get their team a win and take home the bragging rights as an early Christmas present!”
