The game starts off with Mario, Toad and Princess Peach relaxing in the castle during the biggest sporting event of the season. The Mushroom Kingdom Dodgeball Tourney. Residents from all over the Mushroom Kingdom join in the game with their friends to rival every other team and win the Gold Trophy. Bowser becomes furious at the fact that he wasn't invited to join in the fun and decides to hold his own sporting event to rival the Mushroom Kingdom's down at the Koopa Kingdom. Bowser sends a Paratroopa to deliver a message to Mario and his friends to inform the crew on his new event and demands that Mario gather up a team and join in to see if he's any match for the Koopa Troop. Mario accepts Bowser's challenge and heads off to gather up a team. Toad get's worried and asks Mario if he knows the basics on how to play Dodgeball, then the player will have to perform a mission that involves dodging the balls Toad throws at Mario. If the player succeeds, Toad will join your team and the adventure really begins.
Once the player completes Toad's mission, he/she can explore Peach's Castle to find more teammates or leave the castle right away.

Upon leaving the Castle you can still explore the Castle grounds where you can find Yellow Toad and have him join your team. If the player leaves the Castle Ground they will see Hammer Bro. holding Toadette hostage. When Mario confronts the Hammer Bro. he will be forced to enter a Battle mission in which he must dodge Hammer Bro's Hammer throw.
