Stefan Edberg at the 2016 Necker Cup


Stefan Edberg with Rafael Nadal at the 2013 edition of the Necker Cup

Stefan Edberg will take part in the 2016 Necker Cup, hosted like every year at Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island from November 14th to 19th.

After his 2013 appearance, Stefan will be for the second time at the charity event that pairs up 16 ATP/WTA players with amateurs of all levels. The Swede will offer his first public tennis display, aside from those with Roger Federer, since the 2014 King of Tennis in Stockholm.

This year’s big names will include former WTA world number 1 Caroline Wozniacki, Daniela Hantuchova, Viktor Troicki, last year’s US Open champion Flavia Pennetta and her husband Fabio Fognini.

The event formula is based on a handicapped scoring format that makes it competitive for every player. Teams consist of one pro and up to two amateurs. Teams compete to win their group and earn a chance to play in the Necker Cup Finals that will take place on the final day before a Charity Tennis Exhibition.
