This week’s Dev Diary is a call to action for you, the community, to give us your greatest suggestions for challenges to coincide with the upcoming release of Tennis Manager 2022. To celebrate this milestone, we want to present the players with a grand roulette of 22 separate challenges to master in exchange for some fantastic prizes we at Rebound have lined up for you!
22 Challenges for TM22
For example, some ideas might be to challenge ourplayers to see who can be the first to get Emma Raducanu a second grand slam victory and prove that her 2021 US Open win was not just fluke. Each idea should have a special reason behind it. Our studio head Antoine suggested Benoit Paire, who has never cracked the ATP Top 10, would make a great challenge for our players to do so with him in their career.

If you have an idea that you think has a great story, great potential for the kind of managerial roleplay we’re looking for, and enough of a challenge for our highly skilled community to face, let us know on Discord where a special channel has been created to receive all your suggestions (DISCORD COMPETITIONS > #tm22-challenges). We will collect all of your ideas together, and the Rebound team will decide upon the best 22 of them.
All ideas are welcome! Themost creative ones will be granted by an award 😊
One competition, 2 ways to win an award
The first phase of the contest, which is starting RIGHT NOW, will be dedicated to the collecting of your challenge ideas. Among all your proposals, we will choose members whose ideas will have surprised us the most. These lucky ones will be the first winners of this competition whose results will be unveiled on Discord and on our social networks on April 25, 2022.
The second phase of the competition will start at the release of the game on May 17th. Once we've collected your fantastic ideas and chosen the 22 best ones, we'll launch an animated roulette to get you started. An epileptic GIF that loops and stops randomly on 1 of the 22 serious or funny challenges you will have to complete in TM22 😉.
From then on, you will have 30 days (until June 17) to reach as many challenges as possible. Post “Challenge accepted” in the dedicated channel with the proof (basically a screenshot 😉). At the end of this intense period, we will draw 1 winner to get a special gift. (Until 3 winners if there are lots of participants!)
What are the Rewards?
Your name in-game as a staff member or as a regen, a TM merch (hoodies, t-shirts, caps…), game keys! This will depend on the number of participants, but that will be announced when the challenge starts on Discord!
So, come on managers! Let’s get ready to rumble with these fun challenges before the TM22 release! Make sure to mark the date in your diary – it’s going to be a crazy few weeks before and after the game is released!
See you then, and I look forward to reading all of your suggestions for Tennis Manager challenges! --- Jeremy
