Wimbledon Screenings: Where To Watch The 2022 Tennis Action On The Big Screen In London
St Katharine Docks hosts Wimbledon screenings

You want to watch Wimbledon but you missed the ballot — and you're not willing to spend the tournament glued to a TV screen indoors, while the sun's a-shinin' and there's Pimm's ready for a-drinkin'.

Luckily, certain London establishments are on hand with a giant screen — and possibly a deckchair or two — so we can enjoy all the Wimbledon 2022 magic between 27 June-10 July, al fresco. Over to you, Emma Raducanu.

Watch Wimbledon at The Piazza, Wimbledon

Where better to watch Wimbledon than... in Wimbledon? Once again, a screen will be set up in The Piazza in the town, with deckchairs set out for you to make yourself comfy. You'll be so close to the action, you'll almost be able to hear the thwacking and grunting live from Centre Court.

The Piazza, free, just turn up, 27 June-10 July 2022
