Watch Andy Murray at the Wimbledon Final at Portsmouth Big Screen
|Author: Portsmouth City Council||Published: 7th July 2012 16:53|
To celebrate the Men's final at Wimbledon with Andy Murray go down to the Big Screen in Portsmouth Guildhall Square this Sunday 8th July at 1pm.
There will be free taster tennis sessions held from 11am until 4pm daily along with The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), and a team of coaches from local clubs, on hand to help you improve your technique. So, whether you want to learn the basics or perfect your serve, feel free to come along and put your skills to the test.
It is 74 years since a British man has been in the Wimbledon finals and Andy Murray will be playing Roger Federer after beating Tsonga yesterday.
Cadburys will also be on site hosting games for your chance to win some prizes.
There will also be two special cardio tennis sessions each day, from 12.30pm until 1pm, and from 1.30pm until 2pm. During these fast-pace cardio sessions, pedometers will be used to see how many steps can be done in 30 minutes. You could even turn it into a competition, and see who can do the most.
If you're more of a spectator than a player, you could always pack a picnic and come along and enjoy the atmosphere.
Wimbledon 2012 at the Portsmouth Live Site is organised by the LTA and Portsmouth City Council working with local tennis clubs across the city, including Southsea Tennis Club, Bransbury Park, Priory Tennis, Portsmouth Tennis Academy, Portsmouth ITI and Cross Sports.
