It is the latest live event for the company, which often says that it is not in the live sports business, after The Netflix Cup, a live golf event featuring folk from Drive to Survive and Full Swing.

The Netflix Slam will be produced by Full Day Productions, which is led by Connor Schell and David Chamberlin and backed by Peter Chernin’s The North Road Company. Full Day produced The Netflix Cup.

The event will stream live as a dual broadcast for English and Spanish audiences.

There will be additional games as well as the Alcaraz and Nadal matchup.

“I’m honored and so happy to be sharing the court with Rafa in Las Vegas,” Alcaraz said. “He’s an all-time great, of course, and his records and achievements speak for themselves.”

“I’m very excited for my first visit to Las Vegas,” Nadal added. “I’m also very excited to be playing with my fellow countryman Carlos Alcaraz. I am sure it will be a fantastic night of tennis.”
