Tennis Clash (known as Tennis Clash: Fun Sports Games on iOS and Tennis Clash: 3D Sports on Android) is a hugely popular new tennis game with all kinds of game modes, ranging from tour to tennis. The tournament mode is the last mode in the game to unlock, and it’s one of the most confusing at times, but it can also be one of the most rewarding.
You can compete in a tournament against a number of other players for a total of 30 matches with the biggest rewards going to whoever places the highest in the tournament brackets. Read on for a guide on the tournament in Tennis Clash!
First of all, you have to unlock the tournament by getting 150 trophies, minimum. Do that to unlock both Tour 4 and the Tournament mode. If you drop back below 150 trophies at any point after this, the tournament stays unlocked.
Once you do have tournament mode, then you’ll see various tournaments pop across the screen during different times. Each tournament is divided into similar categories as leagues, such as Beginner, Rookie, Junior, Intermediate, Master, etc. Which tournament bracket you end up in depends on what your league is.
The first round of the tournament will be the Qualifying Round. Play this round to qualify for the next round, which is the Tournament Round. Qualifying is a total of 10 matches long.
50% of the challengers in the Qualifying Round will make it through, so all you have to do is be in the top 50%. Once you make it, you’ll be placed into brackets.
The second round is the Tournament Round. This round contains the top 50% of people who tried to qualify. The Tournament Round consists of 20 matches, where you and the qualified players fight to see who can finish the Tournament with the most wins.
One thing that separates the Tournament from the standard tours is that items are capped off at a set level. The level tends to change depending on the tournament, but if you notice that your character is slower, makes weaker hits, or otherwise can’t do what they used to be able to do, this is the reason for it.
Every other player has this handicap, too, though. They’ll all be slower, so think back to when you were brand new to the game if you want to figure out how to play with less speed, agility, stamina, or power. You can even unequip all of your stuff, or equip worse equipment, to practice with a low stat rating if you want to.
Once you get into the Tournament mode, you’ll get some replays of your worst-performed matches. So if you have a complete stinker of a match, all you have to do is try it again, and you’ll have a shot at excelling.
Once the Tournament is done, you will get a huge prize depending on your rank in the tournament. The higher the rank, the better the prize bag. Tournaments contain tournament-specific prize bags containing rare and epic equipment, lots of gems, lots of coins, and more bonuses. So rank as high in the tournament as possible, as often as possible.
