A CITY shopping centre has scored another ace event designed to draw in the crowds.

Tennis fans will be heading to Westquay's Esplanade to watch Wimbledon on the big screen from the city's very own 'Murray mound.'

One of the world's best loved tennis tournaments will be shown at from July 2 -15 at the iconic city venue.

With the qualifiers already over and players from around the world ranked, fans will kick back on deckchairs and giant bean bags in front of the city's historic mediaeval walls. Seedings for the tournament are now out and Roger Federer and Simona Halep have taken number one spots - while GB's Andy Murray is unseeded but back in the game after an absence of 11 months.

Serena Williams is seeded 25th and looking to take away her eighth Wimbledon title - while sister Venus is ranked number 9 and set to play her 21 championship.

Now Westquay managers are hoping to entice fans down to their very own 'Centre Court' with offers from restaurants and a bar serving Pimms, strawberries and cream and cocktails.

There will also be a 'game garden' with table tennis, chess, connect four and a sand pit for children.

General Manager at Westquay, Andy Collyer, said: “We’re excited to offer our customers a shopping experience with a sporting twist. We can’t wait to welcome our visitors onto the Esplanade to enjoy the thrilling tennis coverage, whilst they immerse themselves in Wimbledon traditions.”

It's the latest in a series of regular events at the new Westquay. As reported the outdoor auditorium was designed in a bid to highlight the city's mediaeval walls and has already featured a number of events including a giant maze, light shows, a festival of colour and an ice rink. The shopping centre was recently awarded two international awards for architecture.

To be in with the chance of winning cinema tickets and a meal for two, customers will be able to share their experience of Westquay’s Wimbledon coverage using the hashtag, #WimbledonWQ.
