  • They may have thought it was another day in the office, but Sky Sports Tennis had other ideas for the broadcasters’ biggest names.
  • Sky Sports is the new home for tennis in the UK & Ireland, with Sky Sports Tennis set to launch on Sky and NOW this Sunday [11 February], making tennis available all day, every day for fans.
  • Sky Sports will broadcast more live tennis than anywhere else, bringing over 4,000 matches from more than 80 tournaments a year on the ATP & WTA Tours, as well as exclusively live coverage of the US Open.

As Sky Sports prepares itself to be the new home of tennis, “new balls” flooded Sky Studios in London. Stars such as Jamie Carragher, Karen Carney, Natalie Pinkham, Izzy Christiensen, Nasser Hussain, Naomi Schiff and Tamsin Greenway couldn’t turn a corner without tennis balls firing from vending machines, flooding the corridors or raining from the ceiling.

Hilarious reactions ensued in the 30” video as a reminder to the stars of Sky Sports that play starts now.

Sky Sports Tennis is set to launch on Sky and NOW from 11 February 2024, with coverage of the biggest events on the calendar expertly analysed by former top British players Tim Henman and Laura Robson, presented by Gigi Salmon with the well-known voice of Jonathan Overend on commentary.
