Wii Sports Club is a game for the Wii U and the third installment in the Wii Sports series. This is the only Wii Sports game for the Wii U. This game was released in 2013. Like Wii Sports Resort, this game makes full use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory or Wii Remote Plus.
In the game, the player can compete with other people around the world in games, or have a local game to improve their skills. The game has different clubs the player can represent for their country and are locked into the club for 24 hours. The game features Miiverse integration as the player can post thoughts, cheers for players in their club, or accomplishments. The game requires passes purchased from the Nintendo e-Shop to play. A single sport pass wthat gives full access to any sport without expiration costs $9, while a 24-hour pass costs $1.
The game introduced 111 new CPU Miis in the new game Wii Sports Club. In the game Miitopia if you choose to leave Streetpass off then the Mii Cast will be automatically filled in by Wii Sports Club Miis. After Miiverse shut down, any NPC Mii characters visiting your Nintendo Land amusement park were replaced by Wii Sports Club Miis.

- See Grades.
- In Baseball, the CPU Mii‘s teams are chosen randomly now, and there are now 49 Miis that only appear as teammates.
The game has positive to mixed reviews. Most news outlets praised the addition of online multiplayer but questioned whether it would be able to keep the gameplay fresh and continue to attract 'casual gamers' who were fans of the original. Nintendo Life's Thomas Whitehead said that it has "...the potential to be rather important for the Wii U’s Holiday sales performance." Others praise was aimed at Nintendo's new pricing models and options, although some commented that the total purchase price of all sports may be too excessive.
