Posted by jun auza On 3/22/2013
Tennis is one of the most popular sports of all time. Be it England or South Africa, tennis fans could be found all over the world. The problem, however, is that you can’t play the sport anywhere you want to. Moreover, you can’t expect Wimbledon or any other major tennis event to be playing every time you turn on the TV. To remedy that, however, there are a nice set of apps on Android that can whet your tennis-fanboy/fangirl appetite. These apps range from tennis-based games to applications that help you keep track of the latest scores.


Virtua Tennis Challenge

Virtua Tennis has to be the most realistic tennis game for Android. With over 50 players and 18 stadiums, this game is as close as you can get from getting a real tennis experience. The game supports various gestures and play modes that make it easy to play for newcomers. You can use Swipe, Virtual Pad, Arcade and Game Pad input methods to try topspins, slice shots, lobs and drop shots.

As for the gameplay part, there are multiple modes like SPT World tour, exhibition match, multiplayer, quick match mode and training mode. You can play singles as well as doubles, and yes, you can also challenge any of your friends to a fierce battle using bluetooth. Overall, a fun game for any tennis fan that makes full use of Android’s splendid graphics.



Stick Tennis
