Rainy Day Wimbledon
20th August 2014

Can you feel the slight chill of autumn in the air? It might still be August but children are preparing to go back to school and the summer heat wave seems to have come to an end.

Luckily, there’s still plenty to keep the kids busy on rainy days in Wimbledon, so don’t start counting down the days until they’re back to school just yet!


Get your children excited about the past! Whether it’s the glorious history of The Championships or the story behind the town itself, it’s always exciting to discover the secrets of the place we call home.

What could be better than an afternoon at the theatre when the weather is miserable. The Polka Theatre is our favourite for plays that will delight children and parents alike!

Indoor Sports

We might be in Wimbledon but sport shouldn’t only be about tennis. Badminton and squash are fantastic indoor sports, so why not use a rainy day as an excuse to get your child involved? Wimbedon Racquet and Fitness Club offer junior coaching sessions for both badminton and squash.

Swimming pools

A trip to a local pool is a sure-fire way of both treating the children and tiring them out. The ‘Wet and Wild’ sessions at Morden Park Pools take place regularly during the summer holidays; whilst Wimbledon Leisure Centre and Canons Leisure Centre in Mitcham both offer fantastic swimming facilities.
