Favorite Four: Apps & Games To Enjoy Wimbledon

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 26th, 2013

With tennis season in full swing, thanks to Wimbledon's arrival this week and the US Open in the near future, tennis fans will be understandably keen to try out a variety of great apps and games related to the subject. So, we've taken a look at what's out there and rounded up our four favorites, comprising of a mixture of gaming and factual experiences.

Stickman Tennis
Starting on a light hearted note, don't expect realism here. Do expect fun, though. Stickman Tennis is a simple yet enjoyable tennis game, offering an almighty battle between stickmen people. Despite the cartoonish looks, it's still possible to hit top spins, slices, lobs and all the other correct shots. The complete season offers 64 tournaments so there's plenty to do, too!

The Championships, Wimbledon 2013
Official apps aren't always that great, but this one certainly bucks the trend. Besides offering the usual supply of live scores, results, statistics and a schedule of events, The Championships, Wimbledon 2013 also includes on demand video previews, daily radio coverage, and time-lapse photography from the grounds. For those who want to see everything to Wimbledon, it's even possible to check out 360 degree photos and videos of the grounds.

The Tennis App
Inspired to take up tennis or improve your skills? The Tennis App has it covered. Detailed instructions are offered for every stroke here, from topspin to volleys and overhead shots. A video overview of each stroke is included, along with an animation sequence and focus on key components of the move. It works just as well for left-handed players as it does right-handed, too.

TouchSports Tennis
Offering a more realistic look to Stickman Tennis, TouchSports Tennis is a fun 3D interpretation of the sport. 3 courts are available to choose from, as well as 6 different players. It's easy to learn to play, thanks to a combination of touch and tilt controls keeping things intuitive throughout. More importantly, it's really rather fun.

Real Tennis 2009

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Will on June 17th, 2009
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: DOUBLE FAULT
Gameloft's Real Tennis 2009 may be the best looking Tennis game on the App Store, but it gets just about everything else wrong. Frustrating controls and horribly balanced gameplay make this one an app to miss.

Hit Tennis

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Jeff Scott on December 9th, 2008
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: ABOVE AVERAGE
Hit Tennis is a fun 1-2 player 3D tennis game. The controls are well done, fine grained, and the graphics very smooth. The real fun in the game is playing with 2 players on a split-screen.
