This year's exhibition features Michael Russell, 1994 Boys' 16s Singles and Doubles Champion, and Marcus Willis, 2016 Wimbledon sensation.

Michael Russell, a 17 year ATP pro had a successful career, including 9 years in the Top 100 on the ATP tour. In his tenure on the tour, Michael played in 36 main draw Grand Slam events and was the first player to play through qualifying in four consecutive Grand Slam events.

Marcus Willis made his tour debut at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships and demonstrated great success, winning 6 matches to qualify for the main draw and upsetting Ricardas Berankis in the first round. Willis played Roger Federer in round 2 with refreshing energy and personality. Willis had a successful junior career in Great Britain, including many appearances at junior Grand Slams.
