So you want to watch Wimbledon 2024 but you missed the ballot — and you're not spending the whole tournament glued to a TV screen indoors, while the sun's a-shinin' (hopefully!) and there's Pimm's for a-drinkin'.

Luckily, plenty of London establishments are erecting a giant screen — and possibly a deckchair or two — so you can catch the Wimbledon 2024 action al fresco.

FYI, the Wimbledon 2024 dates are 1-14 July. Stick it in your diary now. This is a massive summer for sport, with the Euro football tournament and Paris Olympics taking place too, so better get scheduling your screenings now...

Watch Wimbledon 2024 in Canary Wharf

The same screen also hosts free open-air Movie Nights throughout the summer, as well as screenings of the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics.
