If your friends are added to the friend's list on your Nintendo Switch account, then you need to select "Create Arena" and your friends will be able to find you. To do this, tell them to click "Join Arena" then "Friends' Arenas."
If you aren't friends through the Nintendo Switch, you need to share your Arena ID. Then, anyone with the ID can join your Arena. To find the Battle Arena ID, create an Arena. Then, click "Arena Settings" - it's the yellow icon in the top left of the screen next to the back arrow.
