To celebrate the release of Mario Sports Mix on Wii and Nintendo's involvement with the 2011 Australian Open, Nintendo invites everyone to come along and play Mario Sports Mix before release, and to participate in the 2011 Wii Sports Tennis Tournament.
Mario himself will be making special appearances throughout the day, and there will be plenty of give-aways, as well as some fantastic prizes for the winners of the tournament.
Mario Sports Mix will arrive on Wii from 27 January 2011, with four sports for the whole family to enjoy! Players can jump into games of hockey, basketball, volleyball or dodgeball, all with that special Mario twist. Mario Sports Mix will be playable during the hours of the tournament, giving fans the chance to enjoy the game before it's release.
You'll also have the chance to show off your Wii Tennis skills in the 2011 Wii Sports Tennis Tournament.
There will be two separate tournaments - One for those aged 12 and under, and one for those aged 13 and over. Anyone can play, so come along and have some fun!
Tournaments will be run in knock-out elimination style, with game length decided on the day (either best of five or best of three). Semi finals and Grand Finals will be best of five.
