7 unique sports venues - check out the rooftop tennis court

LINK

I had never seen these before. The tennis one in Dubai is crazy. Not much room for error trying to get a ball......

I ate dinner at that place. Crazy expensive. The hotel security won't let you onto the premises unless you are a guest or have dinner reservations.

The yardage vision on that floating green is hilarious. If I had to stop a ball on that green from 220, I'd just throw the ball in the fricking water

I don't why but I have become more fearful of heights the older I have gotten. That picture of the Dubai tennis court made me feel very uneasy. I know, I'm a wussy.

The tennis court in Dubai was set up just for a photo shoot. Normally it's a helicopter pad.

The helipad court looks to be scaled down like the Fresh Prince's b-ball court

I would definitely not be running down any shots. You'd lose so many balls too.

No shit, but actually I have a buddy who's family lives in Idaho. He said he's played the course several times and it's rarely further than like 130

They brought one of the Red Bull F1 cars up there this weekend and did some donuts for publicity, sure there is a video out there somewhere.

Here's a linky

Not a bad way to celebrate 4 straight drivers' AND constructors' championships.
