Once in the game’s main menu choose table tennis and from there you will see the option to either have play the match or the challenge, here’s the difference. Upon entering the match portion of the table tennis game you will first arrive at the player screen where you select how many players will be playing the game, this can be anywhere from 1 to 4 players. After selecting the player Mii’s you will be asked to calibrate the Wii remote (that should include the Wii Motion Plus. In order to do this simply played the remote face down on a flat surface such as a tabletop and as the calibration process goes on the Wii remote symbol will rotate counterclockwise. When calibration is complete you will enter the table tennis match screen where you can do the various badges that can be won through mini in-game challenges as well as seeing who you will be playing. After selecting the A button on the Wii remote you will enter the final screen prior to playing a game, aim your Wii remote towards the center of the TV screen and hit the A button once more.
Finally, you are now ready to play table tennis from Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort. Each player gets to serve as a piece and you begin the game. The goal of the game is simple, the first one of six points wins. To begin, swing your remote slightly in the air signaling for the tennis ball to be thrown in the air. As it comes down swat at the ball from the viewer’s right to get topspin on the ball and swat from the left side to get backspin. From there, each player swings at the ball until the game is won.
In addition, the choice is also available to play the return challenge from the table tennis menu. The steps to get into the challenge are the same as get to the match and the “game” can be a bit more challenging than the previously mentioned. While badges are also awarded for various completing feats within the game there is all but one rule; continue on for as long as you can. Please allow explanation. Basically, the server (Cole) serves the ball and the player must in turn hit it as many times in a row without the ball missing the table. The ball must hit the
server’ s part of the table once in order for the point to count, however, should the ball not bounce on the table the game will be immediately over. One thing worth noting, is no matter what table tennis option chosen remember to wear the wrist strap on your Wii remote as tightly and as comfortably as possible in order for the remote to be secure.
