Tennis fans will be able to watch the latest court action unfold on the big screen, as Wimbledon on the Green makes a welcome return to Royal William Yard. Running from the 2nd – 15th July, Royal William Yard’s lawn will play host to a big screen, deckchairs, Pimm’s, and a plentiful supply of strawberries and cream – bringing a taste of SW19 to the South West.
To celebrate the summer in style, there will be a variety of activities also on offer over the Wimbledon weekends. For those wanting to give tennis a try, racquet coaches will be providing free lawn tennis lessons, alongside face painting between 10:00 – 16:00 on 7th, 8th, 14th and 15th July, making it a great day out for all the family.
Helping to bring the Wimbledon experience to life, themed refreshments will also be available, with Yard resident bakery, Column Bakehouse, offering eco-friendly picnic boxes for up to four people. With a variety of savoury and sweet treats to tempt the taste buds, including ploughman’s and cake bites, visitors can dine in the open air on the Yard’s lawn, while watching the tennis. Picnic box prices range from £10 for one, £18 for two, and £30 for four.
For those seeking a quintessential taste of summer, French restaurant, Bistrot Pierre will be providing Pimm’s and lemonade. Served from inside the bistro, prices range from £3.50 for a glass and £10.95 for a jug. And Wimbledon would not be complete without local strawberries & clotted cream for £3.50, perfectly served with English sparkling Exton Park Brut Reserve at £6.20 a glass, both available from independent wine lounge Le Vignoble.
