Andy Murray, Jamie Murray and Tim Henman will be among the stars when a six-man tennis spectacular at the O2 Arena in London gets away in September.

The trio will be joined by former Wimbledon champions Pat Cash and Goran Ivanisevic and American James Blake at the 15 September ‘Betfair Turbo Tennis’ event.

Each match will last just 30 minutes, and the player in the lead will be declared the winner after 30 minutes is up.

After five knock-out encounters the unbeaten champion will walk away with £100,000.

Tim Henman said that he is looking forward to this event, because it should be a lot of fun and because it send out the message to kids everywhere that tennis is fun.

The 02 is an Olympics venue and will be hosting the basketball and gymnastics, as well as the world gymnastics championships in 2009.

It opens with a Bon Jovi concert on 23 June.
