Tennis Fever hits the town centre!
What a two weeks, and we want to say thank you to all the shops and offices that really made an effort to show off their tennis displays, we have never seen so many tennis balls in Wimbledon during the fortnight. The screen was as popular as ever and even BBC breakfast brought their iconic red sofa along to interview lots of lovely Wimbledonians from our Big Screen.
We trialled our first pop up in St Marks Place, removing the bins, pruning the trees and cleaning it up. We hosted live music and a Burger Shack alongside the other traders and with the mixture of sunshine and music we had a buzzy couple of weeks. Thank you to The Alex and the surrounding businesses for your support of this successful event.
A big thanks also to The All England Lawn Tennis Club for providing the wonderful hanging and railing baskets.
The town felt very different this year as everyone really got involved in celebrating the tennis – we look forward to planning more celebrations to continue to bring the tennis to Wimbledon.
