The UEFA 2020 and Wimbledon may be over now, but the Olympics and your National team will soon need your support. Are you ready for it?
It’s been a while since the last time we could properly cheer on our favourite team and sports personalities. We know well how much rooting for your beloved team (and the aftermath) can take it out of your body, so wellbeing should be your top priority to keep your energy up all through this summer of sports. And if in need of a recharge, visiting Rathbone Square may be your best bet. Let’s discover why.
Survive a summer of sports in London
We have been spoilt for choice this summer when it comes to sporting activity. From the just concluded UEFA 2020 and 2021 Wimbledon Championships to the Tour De France, International Cricket, and soon to start 2020 Summer Olympics, feelings (and not just those) will get raw by the end of it.
Already, the past month has been a rollercoaster of emotions for sports-aficionados following the excitements of the UEFA and Wimbledon. But waiting for the Tokyo Olympics to start on July 23rd means you may need to restore your lost energies and get ready to express all your enthusiasm in support of your team.
And what better place than Rathbone Place, the hidden gem of Fitzrovia? Our fantastic stores are here to help you prepare for the best summer of sports yet.
