Northampton Borough Council says it is unlikely a big screen will be installed in Becket’s Park in Northampton again if Andy Murray gets to the Wimbledon final.

Two years ago, hundreds of people created a Northampton version of Murray Mount and watched the Scotsman become the first British man to win the men’s title since Fred Perry in 1936.

But a Northampton Borough Council spokesman said there were currently no plans for a big screen to be installed in Becket’s Park for the men’s final on Sunday.

The spokesman said the big screen in 2013 was part of the On the Waterfront festival, a one-off event, that included six zones: tennis, community games, craft and vintage stalls, live music, skate park demonstrations and discounted water sport activities.
