Version 1.2.1 of Nintendo Switch Sports was causing crashes, and Nintendo has pulled the update and shut down the servers while it finds a fix.
Nintendo Switch Sports was updated last wednesday version 1.2.1with few novelties, because it focused mainly on introducing new measures against “cheats”, preventing users from playing online if they detected “fraudulent behavior such as data manipulation”.
However, the update was not very well finished, because it has caused many errors in users who have downloaded it: the game would crash and return to the loading screen before playing a match, either online or offline.
As a result, Nintendo has suspended distribution of the update, and while they find a solution, they have disabled the Nintendo Switch Sports servers.

This includes servers, online play and save data in the cloud: Everyone will become unavailable while they search for a solution to the problem.
