Playing Tennis

Tennis Playing Guide

Use a Joy-Con controller to serve and smash. The key to winning is keep an eye on the ball and time your attacks as you hit it back at your opponent.

Game, set, match! Hold and move one Joy-Con like a racket to perform different kinds of swings. Or twist the controller to add top-spin or back-spin to your shot. Play locally with people in the same room, with faraway friends online, or online in random matchmaking to earn in-game rewards. For 2 vs. 2 matches, if there are fewer than four players, one player will be able to control both characters on their team. Show off your style with a customized racket!
