    Really easy points with Daisy

    It is simple all you have to do is go up really close to the net do a drop shot and your opponent will move up and smack it right back at you the you use the double A shot and aim it away from the opponent. It will never go out and the trick even works on intense computer players if you do it right

    Power Players

    Once you have beaten the game game with any character, press and hold the R button. Once you've done that, your player's serve is the fastest. Using the smash shot serve makes the ball go over 100mph.

    Beat Piranha Challenge

    When playing the Piranha Challenge, choose a character that is fast and/or tall. (i.e. Luigi, Waluigi...) When the game starts, immediately run up to the net and stay there. If your character is tall enough, he/she will be able to return any ball, even ones with an orange trail. But what about the opponent, you say? Well, here's the trick. Whenever a ball is shot, return it toward the piranha plant that shot it, so if the left one shoots a ball, return it to the left. If you keep this up, the opponent will become confused and won't be able to return a single shot you make. But careful: you've got to be quick!
    (NOTE: If you're having trouble reaching the ball, look at the piranha plants. Just before they shoot, they cock their heads in the direction they're going to shoot. This should give you a good head start.)
