This is taken from the parabolic pool table idea.

If you made a big version and made it into a tennis court it would be like a 3D version. Then you could play with the speed of rotation and the effect on the arc of the ball and the difficulty in running around the court wih the extra gravity and the curve of the court to make it difficult or easy to juge bounces.

       Hmm... Take somebody else's idea, change a single detail, post it as your own, making reference to the original so everyone knows you're not plagiarizing it. What an attractive concept.   

       'Tennis Bowl' would be a better title. Feel free to use it, it's not like it has my name on it or anything.

       violently ill not too far into the match. It'd be interesting to play tennis on a (non-rotating) curved surface though.

       Real Tennis (aka Royal tennis) was similar, though not parabolic or moving.   

       The stands, surrounding walls, roof surfaces and most other things in sight were all part of the playing surface.   

       Not sure how this one constitutes a novel idea?
