The team breakdown has been announced for the St James's Place Battle of the Brits Team Tennis, with 13 players representing each side. The event will showcase the best of British tennis, as the top men's and women's players join forces into one of the two teams - the Union Jacks & the British Bulldogs.

How will the tournament work & where can you watch? 

The tournament will see the teams going head to head in a daily mix of singles, doubles and mixed doubles matches.

The teams will accumulate points from individual matches, as they race to the target of 60 points - which will see them crowned Battle of the Brits Team champions.  

Fans can follow all the action live via the BBC’s digital channels (via the BBC Sport website, app and BBC iPlayer channels) as well as on the LTA’s own Youtube and Facebook channels.
