Super Tennis Champs offers a fresh and exciting tennis arena where sixteen
very individual characters battle for the honours. You can play exhibition
matches and leagues in singles tournaments, or compete for the gruelling
grand slam to decide the super tennis champion.
Exhibition - Play singles or doubles with any players on any surface in a
match of 1,3 or 5 sets.

number of whom can be human-controlled.
League (doubles) - Complete in a league for either 8 or 16 players (4 or 8
pairs), any number of whom can be human-controlled provided you have a
suitable four-player parallel port adaptor. If not, then only one pair, or
one player out of each pair can be human-controlled - otherwise when two
human-controlled pairs meet you`d have a problem!.

a different effect on play. The ball bounce on a hard court is fast and
