Fancy a game of Milanese church tennis?

People playing on an orange tennis court in a church.

Back in 2017, Asad Raza put an orange tennis court inside the Chiesa San Paolo Converso in Milan as part of an art installation called Untitled (Plot for Dialogue). Rather than having a captivated audience, players had to settle for Renaissance-era statues and 16th-century frescoes. And if you’re wondering how Raza managed to get permission to have a tennis court installed in a Roman Catholic church, it was deconsecrated many years ago and the building is now privately owned.

But, hey, maybe the Aspria Tennis Cup, an ATP Challenger tournament also held in Milan, could move there one year.
