Summer brings in the good times. Summer allows us to make use of wide open spaces, dine alfresco and drink from midday without being judged. It's also dodgy tans and liberal aftersun. It's longer and brighter evenings and sleepless sweaty nights and it's hoping and praying that you don't pass out on your commute to work.
But it's also the season of quality sport.
This summer, Boxpark Croydon will be screening the season's biggest sporting events in the main park space for you to enjoy with a hearty and delicious meal and a cold drink.
It all kicks off today with Wimbledon. The biggest dons and wannabes in tennis gather in London, sweatbands and all, for the biggest tournament of the year. To make your Wimbledon experience just that bit better, we're offering a refreshing jug of Pimm's for you to enjoy with your friends (or solo, depending on how you roll) for just £15, from the BoxBar.
And nothing says Wimbledon like strawberries, right? Ok, maybe rackets and those green fuzzy balls rate a little higher but, still, you can't have the biggest event in tennis without a generous helping of fresh strawberries. Luckily, Chillbox have you covered. The much-loved Greek frozen yoghurt shack has the perfect alternative accompaniment to your tennis viewing - strawberries and frozen yoghurt. Perfect.
Whoever you're rooting for on centre court this summer, we hope you enjoy watching Wimbledon live with us, and Pimms, at Boxpark.
Pssst...if tennis isn't your thing, not to worry; we have a selection of other sporting events on the horizon for you to enjoy. Details to follow soon.
Anyone for tennis?
