The Grass Court is a tennis court that appears in the Mario Tennis series. It always has a fast ball speed with a weak bounce. It appears in the Game Boy Color game Mario Tennis and Game Boy Advance game, Mario Tennis: Power Tour as the court used in the Island Open.

This court appears in the Nintendo 64 game Mario Tennis, where it has a weak bounce with fast shots.

The Grass Court reappears in the Game Boy Color version of Mario Tennis, and is used in the Island Open. It shares the same bounce and ball speed as its Nintendo 64 counterpart.

Mario Power Tennis / New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis[edit]

In Mario Power Tennis, the Grass Court is one of the three courts in Peach Dome. The ball speed is fast while the bounce is weak. The standard mode is the default mode, but players can also play in ring match or item battles. The Star Cup and Planet Cup tournaments take place in the Grass Court.

Mario Tennis: Power Tour[edit]

The Grass Court appears in Mario Tennis: Power Tour and is once again used for the Island Open, just like the Game Boy Color variant. It has a slightly different appearance in the Island Open, lacking the white arch on the back wall seen in exhibition games.
