Serving up an ace idea

RTW Together Business Improvement District is creating a dedicated fanzone over the Wimbledon Finals Weekend on July 13 and 14. Tunbridge Wells Business Magazine finds out more about this inaugural idea which is sure to prove very popular for any tennis fans in the town…

GAME SET AND MATCH: LIVE COVERAGE ON THE BIG SCREEN

We’ve seen Murray’s Mount, Henman Hill ….. and now RTW Together BID brings you Calverley Grounds’ The Royal Ridge where you can watch all the live tennis action from 11am on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July on RTW’s huge 5m x 3m screen. This is your chance to enjoy all the excitement of the Wimbledon Finals Weekend so why not bring your friends and family and make a weekend of it?

LOVE ALL: DELICIOUS FOOD PACKAGES TO ENJOY

We are delighted to be working with some of our incredible hospitality businesses to bring you pre-ordered mouth-watering packages for lunch, afternoon tea or simple strawberries and cream (well it wouldn’t be Wimbledon without them!) Visit www.rtwtogether.com/rtwfanzone to find pre-order packages from The Pantiles Café & Bar, Taste Wells and Arte Bianca. Simply select your package and contact the café directly to purchase by Wednesday 10 July (payment must be made in advance). Then just pick up from the café in the morning before you head over to Calverley Grounds – just remember to take a coolbag to store your gastro goodies in.

ADVANTAGE POINT: GREAT ENTERTAINMENT ON OFFER

Onsite, there will also be a fully-licensed bar from Fonthill Brewing Co. and a mobile café from The Lodge. Children’s entertainment will include face painting and garden games, hosted by five of our amazing local charities; Demelza, Taylor-Made Dreams, Age UK Tunbridge Wells, Restore Counselling and The Counselling Centre. All we ask is for you to make a small donation each time you play!

COURTING FAVOUR: GREAT SEATING

There is some deck chair seating, available on a first come, first served basis but you are also welcome to bring your own chairs or rugs. There will be an area for people on rugs to the front of the seated area, but please note that some seating will be on the slope of The Royal Ridge to give everyone a good view of the screen.

Alex Green, CEO of RTW Together BID told Tunbridge Wells Business Magazine: “We are incredibly excited to be launching Royal Tunbridge Wells’ very first fanzone. 

“There is nothing more exciting than watching live action sport on a big screen outdoors and Wimbledon Finals weekend seemed like the perfect event to kick off with! We are working with some of our brilliant local hospitality providers who are offering pre-order food packages and there will be a fully licensed bar and mobile café on site too, so we are hoping that the event will be really well supported by local residents and tourists alike. 

“If this event goes well we may well look at bringing more fanzone events to Calverley Grounds in the coming years.”
