Tennis In The Sky

Monday, July 25, 2011


My Balazs loves all things tennis and this morning I showed him this totally impressive tennis court! Just looking at the view makes me dizzy as I'm terrified of hights! But playing a match on top of this helipad at Dubai's Burj Al Arab Hotel must be an experience out of this world! Darlings, would you be brave enough to walk around the edge? Do you play tennis? xo

WOW - this looks amazing. I don't know if I'd be willing to try it out but very cool idea!

Is that real? It looks fake? I cannot imagine they don't have some sort of wall so you couldn't fall off. I absolutely would not be able to even go up there. It's amazing though.

There's no way I could do that. I am so clumsy, I would fall right off! I bet they lose a lot of tennis balls.

Amanda said...

I'm a tennis fanatic, but this just freaks me out! I would be so worried to run right off the edge!

This looks fantastic! One can only wonder what else Dubai is going to come up with to entice tourists.

NOPE!
We had our own high-level adventure yesterday. I can't believe I let my husband fly me around Omaha in a four-seat plane... I hate commercial flights.

I woke up this morning and was like, "did I seriously do that?"

Diana Mieczan said...

Jeanette, it's a real deal! Actually, Balazs and I talked about the wall or net issue as well but it seems like it's not needed. They have that extra net in the end of the court..Hmm..It must be tricky to play and watch the corners at all times..huh?

Diana Mieczan said...

KristiMcMurry, same here..I would trip and fall for sure! Btw: good point about the balls:)

Sara said...

Only Dubai! I guess I would have to try it out...although the membership / entrance fee would be a lot. I would be afraid of tripping off the edge... but I guess it is water below.

Sara Szatmary said...

This makes me extremely anxious just looking at the photos...

Dancing Branflake said...

No way! That is plenty insane! I just got tingles all the way to my toes.

WOW! They must lose a lot of tennis balls!

Jessica said...

Holy cow!! That's amazing! I new that would be Dubai. I would love to try that...although I would not want to be standing at the base of this...I would think the sky is falling with all the tennis balls everywhere haha!

Melissa Blake said...

oh, i'd love to do this!!! hope you had a great weekend, diana!

Elisa said...

Dubai is known for building great things. Looks unreal, yet very interesting!

Hope you and your hubby are feeling better Diana!

With my fear of heights, I would be absolutely terrified on that tennis court. I am even nervous when I have to drive across bridges that are very high.

Diana Mieczan said...

I'm the same, Sunny. I have such a hard time walking across high bridges:) Yikes!

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..thank you, Elisa. We are feeling much better! You are so sweet.

Diana Mieczan said...

Hahah..Jessica. Such a good point!

Sarah said...

Oh wow, this is amazing!

Christianna said...

That is awesome, but also hella creepy! I think it would freak me out to be that high up, playing a sport. I would not pay attention for one second and fall...

Tsuki aka LittleGrayFox said...

ahhh I'm not afraid of heights, but that freaks me out! I love playing tennis, but I would be too chicken to try that!

leave it up to Dubai to have something so crazy!

Jennifer said...

Getting dizzy just looking at the photos, but I'm sure it would be a fantastic experience!

Nikki said...

I would die!

Kirsty said...

That's just frightening that is!

little t said...

Diana said...

I play tennis, but (like you) I am terrified of heights... eek. Speaking of tennis, I am currently reading Open by Andre Agassi. It's pretty good so far... xo.
