How Wii Tennis Can Get You To Wimbledon
Growing up as a little boy, one of the favorite parts of my year was watching the Wimbledon Tennis Championship. For those of you who don’t know, it is a professional event held in London, England every year. A tournament steeped in deep tradition and history and it never disappoints. It is one of the reasons why I loved playing tennis so much growing up and still enjoy going out to the courts every once in a while now.
I was thrilled when the Wii system came out and it the Wii Sports game, as well as Mario and Sonic Olympics’ both came with tennis and ping pong respectively! Finally, a chance to practice my game in those cold, rainy winter months!
The great thing about the Wii is that you can play it sitting down and barely move the Wii Controller, or you can take the innovative opportunity to play interactively with the system and stand up, move around, and, in the case of Wii Tennis, actually practice your strokes! Wii Tennis could be the next training ground for a Wimbledon or Olympic Champion!
Though the Wii has been around for a while and I’ve had my system for six months or so, I feel a new sense of excitement and anticipation now when I turn on my console with friends and we get pretty intense in our Wii Tennis and Ping Pong competitions!
