    I wonder if anybody could recommend a place that will be showing the tennis today in the centre of York. Preferably a decent bar that will not be too busy this afternoon. GF really wants to watch it and I could do with sitting in a bar all afternoon rather than shopping :D

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I can't stand the gay bars due to the god awful music they play. Maybe I should start a spec me a rock bar in York topic.

    Now.........the tennis?

    Although I'm not anywhere near York, I personally think you are going to struggle.

    The Tennis clashes with the World Cup too much, which is inevitably what most places will be showing. Perhaps a Sports Bar that has numerous screens might be showing it at the sametime, but I wouldn't imagine you would get sound.

    I could understand Tennis being on in a sports type bar if there was nothing much else going on at the time, but it's not really a sport that everyone goes to watch at the pub, so I think you are probably best watching it at home.

    Many miles away from home at the moment so a bar is really the only option. Thanks for the reply.

    It's beginning to look like the only option.

    Book a hotel and watch it on the TV.

    Or just miss it, enjoy the sun.

    Unfortunately The Terrace is World Cup only... I know because my cousin practically lives there at the moment

    Again, you're going to be hard pushed to find anywhere in York showing it, sorry.

    Surely thats incorrect now , the group games are over , they have about 5 separate feeds going into that place and they can't spare for other sporting amounts ?

    Could understand in the group games and England games ..... Ohhh well
