Summer of sport

Here at MoneyPlus features desk we love our sport. The domestic football year may be over and the rugby season at an end but there are plenty alternatives to fill the breach. The sports fan need never rest this summer.

From the crack of leather on willow to the roar of the race track, it’s going to be a bountiful season of sport. We’re particularly hoping, after his Queen’s success, that this could be Andy’s Wimbledon year again.

Never rest this summer

We pulled together some of the highlights to watch out for and here’s our top picks.
