this sounds like an exotic place for playing tennis (wondering if anybody thought about building the first antarctical tennis court !)

i would like to see the snow court (with snowmen playing ?!)...
the MCCC (monte carlo country club) courts are also really beautiful, between the sea and the mountains !

(even better in reality !)

...and nobody has a picture of a tennis court on the edge of a cliff ? on the top of a volcano ?...

Man, the quality of the courts pictured in this thread has gone way down hill... Remember the good old days of the early posts when the courts truly were exotic and cool?
