A builder who has built a tennis court on the roof of his multi-million dollar mansion has caused a bitter fight with his neighbors.
When Wayne Dwyer figured out how to use the roof space in his home on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, he initially thought that his neighbors might come and get tennis.
But other residents in the suburb of Mooloolaba, where houses are between $ 5 and $ 8 million, have been less than receptive.

When Wayne Dwyer came up with the idea of the roof space in his house on the Sunshine Coast, he initially thought that his neighbors might come and get a blow to tennis.
Many residents have complained to the municipality about the tennis court on the roof, a source of noise and possible location of a party after Mr. Dwyer handed out flyers to inform them of the construction plans.
& # 39; It's just social tennis. The noise problems come from people on the other side of the river and they are a few hundred meters away, & Mr Dwyer told An ongoing case.
& # 39; They were concerned about the sound of the tennis balls, the grunts of players and the grunts of spectators. I told them it won't be Wimbledon here. & # 39;
Mr. Dwyer said that there might be some jealousy behind his neighbors' complaints – that he can afford a house big enough to put a tennis court on the roof and build it afterwards.
Sunshine Coast Council has issued a statement of enforcement to Mr. Dwyer to stop work on the project because they say that the fence of the tennis court is above the regulatory height of 8.5 meters.
They are now taking him to court because they say the construction has not stopped.
Mr. Dwyer said that he was one step ahead, however, because he had designed the gates and the tennis net to fully fold.
& # 39; The municipality needs a lot of homework for this. They are behind the eighth ball and I think they came to a firefight with a knife, & he said.
He believes it is unlikely that a court would decide that a person cannot go to a certain part of his property.
Sunshine Coast Council said in a statement that they have investigated the situation and are taking appropriate action.
