The borough council is creating an AstroTurf centre court in the Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn, on 15 and 16 July when the Wimbledon tennis finals will be shown on a big screen.
Visitors will be able to watch the women’s and men’s finals on the big screen while eating strawberries and cream or even tennis ball macarons from Temper and Glaze. Alive West Norfolk will offer free short tennis sessions and games. There will be other food and drink to enjoy, including Pimm’s from PM Bars.
There will be a couple of music sets on Saturday from DNA, a Kings Lynn based Rock, Blues, Funk, Pop and Jazz band. On Sunday local trio Vex will take to the stage at lunchtime. Afterwards, at 2pm each day, it’s going to be game, set, match, and championship as the finals begin on the big screen for people to watch.
Grand slam action and activity from 10am on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 July in the Tuesday Market Place, it’s going to be ace!
