Played at home on the TV, Wii tennis is fun, but sometimes it can be a little too virtual. Which is why Wiimbledon is realing it up. In this very special Wii doubles tournament, the virtual action on the screen is complemented by real announcers, real umpires, real ball girls, and, of course, the very real mascot, Wiimby the Tennis Bear. All broadcast on a real big screen, natch. Only 32 teams can compete—there are prizes like massages and video games for the winners—so enter early if you to play. Ticket proceeds, along with drinks for those over 21, benefit the venue. DAMON AGNOS
