What an ace event at intu Watford!

Hundreds of tennis fans, young and old, gathered to watch Wimbledon screen-side at intu Watford from 1-14 July in what was the deuc-iest tournament of the summer!

Families had an ace time watching the games on the big screen at the outdoor Atrium, from the comfort of intu Watford’s striped deckchairs and squishy beanbags. Sports fans feasted on strawberries and refreshing drinks galore, plus intu Watford’s food retailers ‘served’ free product samples during the matches.

Everyone soaked up the atmosphere and sunshine as they witnessed Novak Djokovic defending his title in the men’s singles, and watched Simona Halep win her first ever title in the women’s singles.

Vicki Costello, general manager at intu Watford, said: “We are incredibly pleased with the turnout we had for the tennis – so many families came along for a day of sports viewing, shopping and eating!”

The biggest sporting event of the summer was only the start of the outdoor fun at intu Watford, as the big screen will remain up right through to the end of July. Visitors will be able to sit back and relax to watch Prom in the Park and the Tour De France Cycling highlights throughout the rest of July.

Vicki added: “The Atrium is proving very popular with the people of Watford. By adding compelling events and experiences like the big screen into the mix, we know we can make our shoppers smile even more and that’s all we want. Keep your eyes peeled for details of our next big screen events!”
