Wii Tennis Strategy: Net Smashing

UPDATE: I don't blog here anymore. My new project is TrailBehind - a website for hikers and campers. I made a new blog on my site too.

This installment of Wii Tennis strategy is particularly useful against computer players, playing human on computer or when playing the net against a computer on the baseline in doubles. The fact is, even at the higher ranks, the computer doesn't hit the very ball very hard, and due to the acrobatics of Mii avatars, you can capitalize as the loopers sail over the net.

Just as in serving, you can put some heat on the ball if you hit it at the top of the arc, or close to it. Whenever you are playing the net, and a ball comes anywhere close to you, try and get it on its way up or at the apex. And remember! Mii avatars can jump like Jordan, so you don't even have to be real close to the ball to jump or dive for it. The focus on the racquet play I think is one of the fundamental strengths of the game.

The other consideration is of course which direction you want the ball to go, but usually just hitting it as hard as you can a time or two will put the ball well out of reach regardless.

If you missed my previous popular posts on the Wii Tennis Power Serve and or the Wii Tennis strategy article on the Five Magic Shots, check them out.

My roommates and I are getting a camcorder so we can demonstrate some techniques that we have painstakingly uncovered :)

thank you for your tips.
I train 6 hours on Wii tennis.And since then, the computers is not able to beat me.Even when my opponent is 2000&1900,it cannot beat me.Is there a way to upgrade the level of the computer? Maybe the table tennis games will be stronger?
My tips: be patient.After some returns either the computer is tired and or you get easy open door to finish the point.Thank you.

If you get too good so that Wii tennis is not hard enough, try switching to your other hand.

For a real challenge play a right handed player in your right hand and a left handed player in your left hand - against the bots.

More challenge? Play each player on their backhand side!

Even more? Add lead weights to the remotes - this gives a good workout!

Still more? Try using a stepping machine at the same time... great exercise and so much fun!
