London - Andy Murray will warm up for his Wimbledon defence by participating in the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at London's Hurlingham Club in June, it was announced on Wednesday.

Murray, the world number seven, will be one of the star attractions at the exhibition event in west London from June 17-20 where leading male and female players will get in practice ahead of Wimbledon, the last of tennis' four major tournaments still played on grass.

"Playing at the Hurlingham Club last June was the perfect way for me to warm up for Wimbledon," said Murray.

"It's a great setting and I'm looking forward to playing again this year."

Murray, by beating Novak Djokovic in last year's final, became the first Briton since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the Wimbledon's men's singles title.
