Watch Wimbledon tennis at Canary Wharf + where to play

By Rob Virtue on June 26, 2014 10:25 AM |


Wood Wharf will be revamped for the final days of Wimbledon action next week.

Coverage is already been shown on the screens at the nearby Canada Square Park but Canary Wharf Group is also bringing the action to the park area on the south-east of the estate.

The area at Wood Wharf will open on Monday and include matches from SW19, as well as drinks from the CNTNR waterfront bar. It will run until the following Sunday.


The beach volleyball will also start on Monday.
