With tennis season in full swing, thanks to Wimbledon’s arrival this week and the US Open in the near future, tennis fans will be understandably keen to try out a variety of great apps and games related to the subject. So, we’ve taken a look at what’s out there and rounded up our four favorites, comprising of a mixture of gaming and factual experiences.

Stickman Tennis
Starting on a light hearted note, don’t expect realism here. Do expect fun, though. Stickman Tennis is a simple yet enjoyable tennis game, offering an almighty battle between stickmen people. Despite the cartoonish looks, it’s still possible to hit top spins, slices, lobs and all the other correct shots. The complete season offers 64 tournaments so there’s plenty to do, too!
