Paris, France (WSPA)– The French Open is going on in Paris and a bottled water vendor is allowing people to take part in the fun.

A zipline is currently strung from the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and this is showing people just how fast a tennis ball travels.

The zipline is 115 meters off the ground and zipliners are traveling at 90kph, which is about 55mph.
