Team Woodhouse have pulled together the key sporting dates for your calendar. Get your diary and pen out and cancel those plans…
June 11th – July 11th
With half the games as well as the final all being hosted at Wembley Stadium, football really is coming home! But will Waistcoat’s Wizzkids make it a summer to remember?
June 28th – July 11th
All the usual suspects are back for another crack at Tennis’ most prodigious award. Can Andy Murray mount one last challenge after his latest comeback? Either way, its a great excuse to break out the Fred Perry, Lacoste and of course, the Pimms.
Joshua v. Fury
TO BE CONFIRMED
Potentially the biggest sporting spectacle this year, two British Heavyweights at the top tier of boxing go head to head. The mercurial talent of Tyson Fury vs. the man mountain, Anthony Joshua. Our money’s on the Gypsy King.
July 23RD – August 8th
The all-consuming, awe-inspiring sporting event will excite and captivate the world for the two weeks it graces our screens. But the big question is, can Team GB better their 2016 total?
British Grand Prix
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone, synonymous with action, excitement, adrenaline and Lewis Hamilton. You be forgiven for thinking the Brit is nailed on for his 8th BGP victory, but we can’t help but think a revitalised Max Verstappen or the young Llando Norris driving in his teams home race will have something to say about that…
Tour de France
JUNE 26th – July 18th
Thrilling sprints, gruelling climbs, The Champs-Elysees and some pretty special lycra can mean one thing only: Tour de France time. Last years winner, Tadej Podacar is the man to beat once again and our best bet remains Geraint Thomas.
July 21st – August 21st
The latest iteration of our beloved game, the 100 ball version promises the biggest names in cricket, high scoring, a fast pace and unmissable action. Not to mention, the team names are pretty cool. Go Originals!
The British Open
July 15th – 18th
Scarily narrow fairways, treacherously thick rough and devilishly fast greens. That’s right, it’s Open season. We all want to see Rory do it again but he faces fierce competition from Rahm, DeChambeau, Johnson and Koepka to name just a few. If the wind picks up, the idyllic Kent coast will give even the best sleepless nights; speaking of which, isn’t it time you headed to the range?
