tennis lovers are in for a smashing time in Leeds this summer.

The green carpet has been rolled out in Millennium Square so fans of the game can soak up the latest Wimbledon action on the big screen.

A seated grassy area has been created in the city centre to allow tennis lovers to cheer on Andy Murray while enjoying traditional strawberries and cream.

The square has been a focal point for sport this summer.

It will also be the host for the official Team GB FanZone Leeds for the Rio Olympic games as part of the upcoming City Beach event which is to be held later this year.
