Underwater tennis court in UAE

There has been numerous reports about a design presented to the UAE of an underwater tennis court. It is an interesting idea, out of this world. The idea came from Polish architect, Krzysztof Kotala. He is currently looking investors to fund the project. Engineers have been interviewed and have dubbed the idea as impossible or challenging. Here is a report from DailyMail. What do you think?

An architect has served up plans for an underwater tennis court complete with a massive curved roof that he envisages would keep the water out and let players see fish swimming above.

He wants to build the glass clad-court in Dubai, which has a track record of pushing the boundaries of architecture and engineering, by building the Burj Tower – the tallest skyscraper in the world – and the man-made Palm Islands, for example.

However, engineers warn that such a design may be prohibitively expensive and incredibly difficult to execute.
