Have you ever seen Blake Shelton playing a sport? Neither have we, but according to a close friend, Shelton is quite the athlete. 

Oh yes, Adam Levine has confirmed that Shelton is in fact a good tennis player. Not something you’d expect from the Oklahoma native, but his best friend should know these things. 

Levine and Shelton have been coaches together since season one of NBC’s ‘The Voice’, and have grown to be close over the years. Does that mean he and Levine play tennis together? Not necessarily, but we’ll take his word for it. 

Levine tweeted about Shelton’s athletic ability, see below. 


So is Shelton actually good at tennis? We can’t confirm or deny whether this is a legitimate compliment, or an inside joke from ‘The Voice’ blind auditions. If you consider the hashtag, it could be the latter. 

For now, keep an eye out for Shelton at the tennis club and watch his hilarious banter with Jimmy Fallon below. We’re used to Shelton getting involved in hilarious games like this, and that’s something we’ll never get tired of.
