During this new era of artists adapting to at-home performances due to quarantine, a star has been born: Chloe x Halle’s tennis court.

The R&B musical duo, composed of sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey, debuted their second studio album “Ungodly Hour” on June 12 to fevered fanfare. While promotion for “Ungodly Hour” could have very well been confined to Zoom performances via their living room, the Los Angeles-based residents have instead taken it upon themselves to transform their backyard tennis court into the grandest of stages—and fans have taken notice. 

It all started with a magazine photoshoot: In June, Beyoncé’s protégés graced the cover of Teen Vogue, photographed by drone, and discussed all things “Ungodly Hour” and police brutality. In bright and bold looks, the sisters served major poses on and off the court.

Since then, the tennis court has been utilized for performances. On “Today” and YouTube’s virtual commencement ceremony, “Dear Class of 2020,” respectively, the duo performed “Do It” from the court. For Global Citizen’s “Global Goal: Unite for Our Future” telecast, the two performed “Rest of Your Life”—this time accompanied by dramatic flashing lights. And, most recently, for the BET Awards, the sisters performed a “Forgive Me” and “Do It” mashup—and initiated a dance-off with themselves on the court. 

In turn, Chloe x Halle’s tennis court has amassed a fanbase on social media. 

The sisters are well aware of the tennis court’s new celebrity. On social media, Chloe x Halle would often share photos of the makeshift stage during setup, prior to performances. 

In an interview with Vulture, the musical duo divulged that they haven’t made much use of the court in the two years that they’ve lived in their home—until now. “That’s been a beautiful evolution—using what we have,” Halle said. “We feel so blessed to just be able to do what we love and also do it somewhere nice.” As for the final pièce de résistance, Chloe added, “We don’t actually know how to play tennis.”
