Energy supplier SSE has been giving tennis fans the chance to face Andy Murray's serve with a simulator experience in Glasgow city centre.

Andy Murray faces up to his challenges via a giant LED screen synced with a state of the art serving machine to deliver serves of up to 125kph.


Participants who successfully return serve will be entered into a prize draw for one lucky fan to face Murray's serve for real when the current Wimbledon Champion appears at The SSE Hydro for his inaugural Andy Murray Live exhibition, taking place on 21 September.

Material_UK devised the installation, which is running until this weekend, 7 August. It says that thus far, 14,000 people have stopped by the activation, with a further 10,000 expected over the final days. 

The 'SSE presents...You've Been Served' activity is part of this year's Merchant City Festival. 

Earlier this year, Under Armour created a secret tennis court for Andy Murray. Other tennis-inspired activations include Fentiman's Wimbledon-inspired 'Cocktail Court'
