The BNP Paribas Tennis Classic takes place at the height of the summer tennis season, and gives spectators the opportunity to watch unforgettable, world-class tennis. Set in the tranquil 42 acre grounds of one of the most renowned members’ clubs in the country – the Hurlingham Club – the event showcases some of the stars of the ATP and WTA Tour as they warm up for Wimbledon, as well as a number of tennis legends. Matches take place on Centre Court, which seats an intimate crowd of 600, tennis players mingle with guests off-court and there’s also the opportunity to play tennis with the professionals in the PRO-AMs.
Managed by IMG, the global sports, fashion and media company, the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic takes place from 18-22nd June and offers VIP hospitality with tennis matches from ATP & WTA players and tennis legends. Those confirmed to play throughout the week include Jo Wilfried-Tsonga (world no.8), Tommy Haas (world no.14, who recently beat Djokovic at the Sony Open) and Kei Nishikori (world no.16) as well as tennis legends Pat Cash, Goran Ivanisevic, Henri Leconte, Andrew Castle, Fabrice Santoro and Mansour Bahrami. IMG are also thrilled to announce that World No.2, and reigning US Open and Olympic Singles Champion, Andy Murray, will play at the exclusive BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at The Hurlingham Club in London this June.
On confirming his place at the event, Murray, who rose to number 2 in the world rankings last Friday, said: “I’m really looking forward to being back at the Hurlingham Club. It’s the perfect way for me to warm up for Wimbledon – there’s always a great atmosphere and the setting is absolutely stunning.”
Best known for being the first wildcard entry to win Wimbledon and for his blistering left-handed serve, Goran Ivanisevic added: “I am really looking forward to playing against my old rivals at the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at Hurlingham in June. It’s always a great way to kick start the summer tennis season.”
