Two legends are bringing one of tennis’ biggest charity events to London for the first time. Long time friends Elton John and Billie Jean King will go head to head as they host the Mylan World Team Tennis Smash Hits to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The battle will commence at 6pm on Sunday, December 7 2014, on finals day of the Statoil Masters Tennis tournament at the Royal Albert Hall.

The pair will coach a stellar line up featuring former world number one tennis champion John McEnroe, Tim Henman, Kim Clijsters and Sabine Lisicki. The one-night event will be staged during the final session of the IMG-owned and staged Statoil Masters Tennis tournament.

Since 1993, Mylan WTT Smash Hits has raised more than $12 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and various local AIDS charities throughout the United States. This is the first time in the event’s 22-year history that it will be staged outside the U.S.

Elton John, Founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, said, “Everyone knows I love tennis, and Mylan World Tennis Tournament Smash Hits is always such a great day. I thank our sponsors, Mylan, Billie, and all our friends in the tennis world who are supporting us. We believe that together we can all help create an AIDS free future, and proceeds from the London event will help us get closer to realising that goal, by giving access to life saving treatment to more people living with HIV in Africa.”

Don’t miss out on this landmark event in the surroundings of one of the UK’s most iconic venues.

Tickets from £18.50, available from the Royal Albert Hall Box office.
