    Lol, gee thanks. There's a grass hut in there too, how many courts are surrounded by grass huts? I'm willing to bed not many. I feel like you want me to go back and take it off and apologize for participating in this thread when the picture is totally relevant. But tonight, it's not happening. :) Have a good one.

    I got this

    EDIT: Damn, somebody beat me too it, a looooooong time ago. Sorry I missed it. Did a report on this hotel in marketing lol.

    OKay unless somebody has already posted I am pretty sure I have this. Tennis court on a helipad on the top of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai. When you arrive in the airport you are picked up by a Rolls Royce Phantom. THere is pictures of AA and Fed playing there.

    I personally played at some courts at a 5 star resort in Cuba last December. The courts were about 200m away from the water though and it was humid as hell. I didn't bring any tennis gear and it was brutal playing with what they had there. Fun nonetheless.

    I am posting some amazing court pictures within this short recap of my trip to Kauai.

    The weather was great on arrival:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0387.jpg

    We checked into our vacation house, which you may recognize from "Honeymoon in Vegas":
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0385.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0348.jpg

    The house had a really cool original whale painting:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0346.jpg

    Then we went to the best breakfast in the world at the Princeville Hotel:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0354.jpg

    While you are eating you are surrounded by infinity pools, sculptures and can watch amazing surf:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0356.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0353.jpg

    Then we went surfing:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0350.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0349.jpg

    Finally it was time for tennis on these amazing courts:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0361.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0359.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0360.jpg

    Time for the wedding, which was magical:

    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/granitechief/IMG_0381.jpg

    I wish i had an underwater camera for the moment when i was being dragged underwater by a 4' diameter sea turtle while snorkeling, which produced an undescribably serene feeling.

    And the sun set on my vacation:

    Anyone Seen These Courts?

    Anyone knows were this is?

    Replace planes and highway traffic with the sounds of a waterfall and a stream passing by the courts. Unbelievable peace and relaxation for a match of tennis.

    Sorry about the quality, but snapped these from video.

    I haven't been to Brittany for years. When we were children my parents used to take us. Some of my earliest memories are of visiting odd rock formations and dodging the rain in Port Blanc, Morgat and other places. Your photograph has made me think that Brittany would be a good place to take my children for a summer holiday.

    Is the blue glow a UV light? Cause if it is then my Wilson N-1(back when I was a weak, slow swinging newbie it's Pure Drive with cortex for me now)would look awesome in that light.
