Hot Shots Tennis (Everybody's Tennis in Japan, Australia and Europe) is the sixth game Hot Shots Golf series and the third released for PlayStation 2. It was released on 14 September 2006 in Japan, 13 April 2007 in Europe and 17 July 2007 in the North America. In September 2016, a Playstation 4 version was released on the Australian PlayStation Store.

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.
