Everybody's Tennis (Minna no Tennis in Japan, Hot Shots Tennis in North America) is the first game in the Everybody's Tennis series. It was released for PlayStation 2 on September 14, 2006 in Japan, April 13, 2007 in Europe and July 17, 2007 in the United States. Everybody's Tennis was the first spin-off from the Everybody's Golf series. At E3 2009, a PlayStation Portable version of Everybody's Tennis was revealed.

Gameplay[edit]

The game has 14 characters, 5 umpires, and 11 tennis courts. There are 3 different modes to choose from, which are Challenge Mode, Tennis with Everybody, and Training Mode. In Challenge, you play against computer controlled opponents in order to unlock things like alternate costumes for characters and more courts to play on. In Tennis with Everybody, you can play matches with 1 to 4 players. The training mode lets you practice positioning and timing shots. You can choose from service, volley, smash and general practices in this mode.

Few of the characters from the previous games of the series (both American and Japanese) make cameo appearances on the courts (usually only in Singles matches). Suzuki and Gloria return as being playable characters.
