Wii Tennis is great fun, especially a two person game against friends.
Wii Sports Tennis Game
You basically swing your Wii-mote at the tennis ball to hit it over the net and in your opponent's court. Just like in real tennis, it matters if you swing a forehand or a backhand swing, so preparing your Wii-mote to swing at the tennis ball helps a lot.
First off, the best way to get better at the Wii sports tennis game is to practice. Using the Wii Tennis Training you can work on timing your swing, returning balls, and targeting the ball. Just like any game, practicing your Wii Tennis makes perfect.
Next is to get a great serve. To hit a really hard tennis serve (and you'll know it when you hit it), you must hit the ball at its peak. This takes practice, but it's worth it. If you can get the hard serve most of the time in Wii Tennis, you will win most of your service games.
When you swing your tennis racquet makes a difference. Assuming you are right handed, if you forehand swing the Wii-mote early the ball will go to the left, if you swing it later the ball will go to the right. Swing the Wii-mote too early, or too late and you will either miss the tennis ball or hit it out of bounds.
Hitting the tennis ball at the net can help too. If you can hit the ball with the front player quickly, you can often take your opponent off-guard or hit the ball with enough angle that they cannot hit it back.
Other Wii Tennis Tips:
- Be careful not to swing at the tennis ball when it's out of bounds. Let it drop and you will win the point.
- Get your Wii-mote positioned and ready before your opponent serves. Assume they will hit a smash.
- You can control the spin on the tennis ball by rolling your wrist forward (top spin) or backward (back spin) when you follow through on your swing. This is an advanced skill on Wii Tennis and you should practice on the Wii Tennis training first.
- Play both sides of the tennis court. That's right you can play both sides by selecting the same Mii for both players.
