Let's start with the most important question of all: "So, A Customer, if we don't level-up an avatar or swap-out rackets and other gear" (which is still only half true) "Then what DO we do?" Well, the main mode of this particular Mario Tennis Title revolves around winning various tournaments, each with several different opponents to face... sort of like Mario Kart. The player will compete against many characters 1-on-1, until either they lose or everyone else has lost, in which case they are crowned the winner and presented with a shiny trophy. So it's single elimination, which is kinda annoying, but whatever. If you liked the main mode of the Mario Tennis games on the consoles than you will probably like this game for it's main mode as well.
You can also play doubles tournaments.
Besides the main mode, one can also choose "Exhibition" (which lets you play with or against any character on any course), "Online" (which allows you to compete with people from all over the world), or "Local Multiplayer" (which allows you to compete with people from all over your living room.)
There are also several unique minigames to play... some new, some traditional to the franchise. These include Super Mario Tennis (Super Mario Bros. with Tennis), Ring Shot and Ink Shot (both classic minigames), and Star Rally (try to keep up a rally on a very tedious court.)
Okay, so we have covered the main points of the game. But why is it that whenever I say "there is no swappable gear" I go on to say "well, that is only half true"? Well, that is because you can play as your Mii character in this game. And that's where gear comes in. You can customize your Mii with all sorts of different gear, which can either be purchased from the gear booth or won in tournaments. It's not quite as detailed as past Mario Tennis games, though... mostly just there to give you a cool new look, not to give you the upper-hand on the court.
Anyway, long story short, if you want a detailed, multi-hour, tennis-themed RPG, THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. But if you want a way to simply enjoy the sport itself... by yourself or with friends... I highly recommend giving this game a try.
And, y'know, cause there are a grand total of three sports games for 3DS right now (thanks a lot, Madden!)

I was wrong, the equipment DOES improve your Mii's stats by quite a bit. Sorry about that!
