- Wii remote or Wii RemotePlus loaded with their Mii player.
- Wii Sports
How to practice
- Wii Sports is one of the few games that provide skill-honing mini-games. It's a mistake to jump right into playing the game without using these mini-games to build your virtual tennis-skills foundation. In fact, in a competition, your team must qualify in each of the practice modes to enter into the tennis competition.
- There are three practice modes which supports four players. All modes reward your Mii with medals instead of points. The four medals from lowest to highest are bronze, silver, gold and platinum. The three modes are: returning the ball, timing your swing and hitting the moving target. Refer to Info 101: Virtual tennis practice tips for a great workout for more information about these modes. It will take practice to master these modes. Collateral rewards may include improvement in hand/eye coordination, fluidity and grace during play, accuracy in shots.
- Each player must also play against the Wii avatars to become a professional and qualify for competition. Players must have a score of 1000 or higher.
Since playing against another human requires the screen to split, competitions pit humans against the game's avatars. Highest ranking Wii Sports avatar tennis players are Elise and Sarah. Teams play two of their players against the game; best three out of five. To enable all four players on a team to compete, each team plays two sets.
The team with the highest cumulative score wins the tournament.
