This Is The Coolest Tennis Court You'll Ever See In Your Life

We're not exaggerating when we say that this might just be the coolest tennis court you're ever going to see let alone play on.

Housed within the iconic 16th century Paolo Converso church in Milan, it's the visionary work of visual artist Asad Raza created in collaboration with Converso. Inside you'll find all the essentials, nets, court markings and even some refreshing ice jasmine tea.

Also part of the installation are two tennis coaches who exchange tips and interact with visitors, coaxing them into having a game or two. It must be a surreal experience to be mid serve and suddenly see the church's statuary and altar laid out in front of you.

Normally reserved as a place for quiet contemplation and receiving messages from higher authorities, Raza has transformed the space into a place of two-way exchange, activity and recreation.

Anyone who has ever watched or played a game of tennis will understand the inherent beauty in the game itself, much like playing a game of chess, tennis rallies create ephemeral beauty through actions never to be repeated.
