Plans for an underwater tennis stadium off the coast of Dubai look set to move closer to reality, according to the Polish architect behind the project. 

Krzysztof Kotala hit global headlines last year when he unveiled the initial designs for the proposed Underwater Dubai Tennis Centre. 

Speaking to Arabian Business ealier this week, Kotala revealed he is in talks with potential investors in a bid to make the project a reality. 

The initial designs for the project, which will be located near the Burj al Arab hotel, featured seven arenas with a carbon-glass glazed dome above the court. 

“This will be something original. This should be somewhere where there is the tradition of tennis. Dubai is perfect for this idea,” Kotala said in April 2015.
