Church Turned into a Tennis Court

The U.S. born alleged artist Asad Raza was allowed to transform the 16th-century church San Paolo Converso in Milan, Italy, into a full functioning tennis court. Anyone is allowed to play.

The church was secularized in 1808 by Napoleon Bonaparte who turned it into a warehouse. It is now privately owned.

“For Raza, the game serves as a method of absorbing energetic drives into symbolic but non-harmful practices”, reads a description of the piece. Raza is probably not aware that he could have reached this goal with simpler means.

I think we need to call "sacrilege" on this one - don't we?

Tennis or volleyball courts are fine, Just don't have a traditional mass said there.

What's all the racquet?
This church started with love, it's not at fault.
What time is Mass? Oh, about tennish.
OK, I'll stop with the backhanded comments.
