Thinking about the most incredible sports stadiums in the world most people would think of the FC Barcelona or Madison Square Garden, However we decided to collate something a bit out of the ordinary. Here are some of the weirdest and most amazing places to play sport in the world.

Tennis On A Helipad

Roger Federer and Andre Agassi in Dubai

Dubai offers a scary but one of a kind experience of playing tennis at a massive height of the Burj Al Arab helipad. This venue is a luxury hotel known as one of the tallest hotels in the world so its not difficult to imagine why it holds a sport venue at such high altitude.

Basketball On An Aircraft Carrier

But on closer inspection, the game is actually being played on the USS Midway aircraft carrier, which is now a maritime museum in California. You can even see aircraft in the top right hand corner of this picture.

This game was held in 2012 on the USS Midway aircraft carrier which is now a maritime museum in California. The game was attended by President Barack Obama, making the game an even more amazing event.

Ice Golf

It is important to use coloured balls — red, yellow, or even green — as white balls tend to blend in to the Arctic surroundings.

Greenland in true icy style offers the chance to play ice golf in Uummannaq. As you can imagine it is important to use coloured balls playing golf here as white ones blend in with the surroundings.

Beach Rugby

United Arab Emirates holds beach rugby at Ras Al Khaimah. This location was not chosen for sport by preference, the RAK Rugby Club had to do with the makeshift sand pitch until their current club location was built.

River Football

You'd think it would be a good spectator event. You might think wrong. Look at the kids on the right — they're about to get soaked.

Bourghton-on-the-water hosts a single football match once a year on the August Bank Holiday Monday. The unique sport is quite popular despite the fact that most spectators are soaked by the end of the game!

Cricket In A Slate Mine

Yes, this is cricket. And yes, this game was played 2,000 feet underground in a Cumbrian slate mine in the North of England.

In North England lies a Cambrian slate mine, of which English village teams made use of as a cricket pitch in 2013. It was the first time cricket has ever been played underground. The game was a charity event to raise money for Threlkeld’s flooded grounds.

Skiing In Fenway Park

Speaking of thrillseeking, how about the time Fenway Park — iconic home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team — was turned into a monstrous ski jump?

In 2016 the home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team was transformed into a huge ski jump. Professional skiers competed here including freestyle skier Andri Ragettli.

Horse Racing On Lake St. Moritz

Finding big air isn't the only fun thing you can do in snow, you can also race horses like they do on the frozen surface of Lake St. Moritz in Switzerland.

In Switzerland on the frozen surface of Lake St. Moritz horse races are held. The ice would want to be thick holding the weight of pounding horses and their riders! Polo is also played here as an alternative sport to racing.
