The Benefits of Tennis Champs Ownership
April 12, 2022

As we get closer to our beta launch, we want to start sharing details of the overall economy design and the key role that Tennis Champs NFTs play in the ecosystem.  We also want to clarify the privileges that our Tennis Champs Genesis holders will have in the ecosystem.

What is the core Tennis Champs gameplay?

As most of you know, Tennis Champs is a game built around real-time tennis matchplay between players.

As we open up the game on test-net, you will be able to play in these matches against other players for either fun or token prizes. In addition, we will have single-player challenges that allow players to win tokens. 

With the token rewards you win, you can recruit (“breed”) more Champs to collect, “rent” out, and use in the game.

What role do Tennis Champs NFTs play in the game?

You can always play the game for fun with a practice character, but all gameplay that provides token rewards will require a Tennis Champs NFT.  

Tennis Champs NFTs can be purchased from other players, minted in the game with RPG/”breeding” mechanics, or "rented" from other players as the game’s ecosystem develops.


What are the privileges of the Tennis Champs Genesis Series?

The Tennis Champs Genesis Series NFTs are unique Champs that are the privileged early entrants into the Champs metaverse. Initially, these Genesis Tennis Champs will recruit the NFTs required by players to play.

In addition, the Genesis Series are special and different in other dimensions:


There are only 3,333 Tennis Champs in the Genesis Series. Non-Genesis Tennis Champs NFTs will be recruitable in the game, but these additional NFTs will not enjoy the rights and privileges of the Genesis Series.


Each of the 3,333 Tennis Champs Genesis Series NFTs are excellent PFPs with super stylish dance moves and a burning crown that sets them apart from all other NFTs, both as playable characters in the game and as badges of honor on social media.

Each Genesis NFT is also completely unique in appearance and gifted with a name that gives it individuality; the non-Genesis NFTs will have to earn the right to be named and are not necessarily guaranteed to be visually unique.

Future NFT Drop Privileges 

Tennis Champs Genesis Series holders get first shot at minting at least one NFT in any and all future NFT drops in the Champs Metaverse, including any “land” or other asset sales we do in the future. This access may be through registered whitelisting, free mints, or discounted mints.

Champs Metaverse Access Pass

Genesis Series Champs act as passes through which blue-chip PFP holders (such as Nouns, Bored Apes, and other projects) can use their NFTs in Tennis Champs as well as in other future games in the Champs metaverse. This capability will only get more valuable as more projects and games are added to the Champs action and sports-game metaverse.

VIP In-Game Earning Opportunities

Tennis Champs Genesis Series NFTs are treated as VIPs across the game. Genesis Series Champs have special token-based tournaments reserved exclusively for them, giving holders an opportunity to earn and win even more tokens as compared to other players. These exclusive tournaments are also tied to season-based challenges, making it easier for a Genesis Champ to complete quests and unlock amazing token rewards each season.

Exclusive Gameplay Benefits

The VIP treatment doesn’t just end with exclusive tournaments and seasonal challenges for exclusive rewards. Tennis Champs Genesis Series Champs will have more recruitment slots to generate Tennis Champ NFTs  as compared to the non-Genesis Tennis Champs, giving them unique advantages when it comes to recruiting more Champs NFTs to own or “rent”.

We will reveal more details on recruitment slots and other game benefits once we achieve 100k members each on Twitter and Discord, so please stay tuned!

Are there benefits to owning multiple Tennis Champs?

Class Specific Tournaments

Just like the Tennis Champs Genesis Series have exclusive tournaments, the game features specific tournaments and quests that are exclusive to Tennis Champs with different attributes that fall into distinct classes. A player who has a variety of Champs (either owned or rented) on their team roster will be able to participate in more tournaments and fulfill the season quests more quickly than a player with just one Tennis Champ.

The More the Merrier

NFT owners will be able to make use of Joyride’s NFT “rental” system, allowing them to lend their Champs to “scholars” for use in the game for shared rewards. With this economic infrastructure built into the Joyride platform and the Tennis Champs game, the more Tennis Champs that a person owns, the more the opportunities to benefit by “renting” them out to others!
