Keeping up with the Brits: Battle of the Brits


| News

With the announced return of professional tennis in the UK with the LTA’s British Tour events, as well as Jamie Murray’s Schroders Battle of the Brits and the Progress Tour Women’s Championships, the Brits have been hard at work getting back to match fitness. This week in ‘Keeping up with the Brits’ we follow the players as they get back to tennis and put in the hours on the practice court.

Meanwhile this week the tennis community joined the rest of the world in showing their support for equality. Catch up on the latest from our British tennis stars here.

Tennis stands together

Tennis is a sport that is open to all. We stand together.

We are BLACK MEN! We build, We don’t tear down other BLACK MEN! We have felt the pain of being torn down and we have decided that we will be deliberate about building others! All too often, we find it easier to criticize each other instead of celebrating one another. With all the negativity going around, let’s do something positive!!🌟 Upload 1 picture of yourself.... ONLY you. Then celebrate as many brothers as you can by tagging them and asking them to do the same. (If I didn’t tag you, please don’t be offended, I tried to pick people I thought would participate in this challenge.) 🤎 COPY AND PASTE 🤎 Thanks for the nomination @ccthetenniscoach @coacho.g ❤️🙌🏽🙏🏽 ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE AND LETS BUILD EACH OTHER UP!!!
