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.

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.
