Underground Racquets Ltd. runs an underground tennis court in a huge limestone cavern. Like many limestone quarries, this place was for rent after the quarrying ended, and new uses were found. But while most caverns are used for such profane things as soring things, this one is big enough for two tennis courts. Like in a tennis hall, the player is independent of the weather outside, but aditionally there is no cost for heating or air conditioning, as the caves have a rather temperate temerature throughout the year. Unfortunately the court is only for members, but if you ask in a polite way, you may be allowed to have a look.
