It’s safe to say that when *all this* began, we assumed sport had been cancelled. But life finds a way, and in this case it’s two women who went viral for their game of rooftop tennis.
A video shared to Twitter over the weekend with the #TennisAtHome tag shows two women in the middle of a friendly, but wildly impressive, tennis rally from the rooftops of their neighbouring apartment buildings in Liguria, Italy.
Watch it below and try not to think about how you blew off your morning workout for the third day in a row.
Just incredible to see

Literally all I know about tennis is that Roger Federer and Serena Williams are so hot they could hit the ball into my face and I’d thank them, but even I can tell that this game of rooftop tennis is some good shit.
The women manage to keep a rally going despite what looks like a massive gap between their rooftops, without losing a single ball (that we can see). They’ve also got limited space and weird vents (??) to compete with, so honestly bravo.

Rooftop tennis isn’t the only creative way people are entertaining themselves in self-isolation.
Great, love that for them! But some people have been getting weird, because what is 2020 if not a perfect time to let your freak flag fly? We’ve rounded up the most bizarre things people have been doing at home, like recreating the “A Little Bit Alexis” dance from Schitt’s Creek.
If you want a hot iso body but playing tennis at home isn’t your thing, we also spoke to a PT about how to work out at home.
