With the cancellation of most sporting events, many have turned to virtual courts to hold tournaments. This is the case of IMG Tennis, an organization that created a virtual competition that will take place in the Nintendo Switch game, Mario Tennis Aces.
The list of participants will undoubtedly attract attention for its caliber, both in the world of tennis and in popular culture. Some of the highlights include: Maria Sharapova, Venus and Serena Williams, Gigi Hadid, DeAndre Hopkins, Seal, Hailey Bieber, Naomi Osaka, Steve Aoki, Kevin Anderson, Madison Keys, and Ryan Tannehill. Additionally, sports legend John McEnroe will discuss it alongside youtuber iJustine.
The prize will be $ 1 million. But these will not go to the winners, but to the charity they choose as a donation. The tournament will air on Facebook Gaming on Sunday, May 3 at 10:00 p.m. CEST / 3:00 p.m. CDT.
