Stick Tennis offers a simple and effective take on the sport, but the free-to-play model gets in the way.
What's NewWe’ve overhauled the Daily Challenge with some exciting new features, including:
- TROPHIES: Each day we’ll be handing out silverware to those who finish at the top of the rankings. Soon you’ll need a trophy cabinet the size of Roger Federer’s!
- REGIONALISED RESULTS: Are you the best at Stick Tennis in your country? There’s only one way to find out. You’ll now be competing against your fellow countrymen every day (this is why we’ll ask permission to use your location data).

This release also includes:
- BRAGGING (iOS 6 only): Whether you’ve just dominated Kournikova or pounded Pistol Pete, you are now able to easily boast about your exploits - with a screenshot included, of course - on Facebook and Twitter.
