The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    A SMASHING HIT



    It's match point and your advantage. You drive a rocket serve to the far corner and rush the net. Your opponent makes a great hit with a lob to the baseline. You scramble back and get off a cross-court passing shot for the point and match. This game has all the strokes of the pros--forehand, backhand, smash or lob.

    GAME PLAY: You gauge the speed of your serve with your timing on the controls, then try to cover the court as the volley begins. Position on the court and timing on your stroke make all the difference. Keep an eye on your opponent and pick your best shot. Lob over the man at the net with your B button shot, then rush the net yourself and get ready for your overhead smash! Your computer opponent has five skill levels to choose from, and you can play it alone or with a friend as a doubles partner.
