After that Mario notices a giant hand coming at them from the airship. Mario manages to dodge the hand but the hand grabs all the heroes. The airship then speeds off across the ocean, on the isle of Delfino and into Casino Delfino. After that a local Toad sums up what happens and explains that they must follow them, Mario nods in agreement. You will then have control over Mario in the same way as the world map in Mario Tennis Aces. Your choices are to return to Mega Stadium and redo the tutorial or head towards an airplane.

The DK Jungle court is in a very dense jungle with a clear spot for the court and some log benches for the fans to sit on. Sometimes a herd of rhinos will charge in on both sides that can hit balls back to players (this can be turned off by turning off hazards).
Dry Bowser's Castle
The Dry Bowser's Castle court looks exactly like the area where the Dry Bones boss fight was in New Super Mario Bros. Fans are watching from the floating moving platform in the sky. On both sides of the court towards the back are axes, if these axes are hit it will cause a giant lava bubble to rain down one on each side (can be turned off by turning off hazards).
Baby Bowser's Castle
The Baby Bowser's Castle court takes place on top of Baby Bowser's Castle from its appearance in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Fans will be watching from the walls and this stage features no stage hazards.
K. Rool's Blast-o-Matic.
The K. Rool's Blast-O-Matic court is inside K. Rool's giant laser base. Bleachers are set up on the sides so fans may watch. On both sides of the court towards the back are levers, if they are hit with a ball it will cause a laser to be shot from the machine causing the court to shake and three rocks to fall on each side of the court which can knock out a character (can be turned off by turning off hazards).
Alternate rackets can be unlocked by completing characters cups or complete Online Tournaments as specific characters. Each racket is assigned to a specific playing type so only characters in that playing type can use that racket.
