A few days ago I was playing Wii Sports on my Nintendo Wii...I played power cruising, swordplay, bowling etc... but I liked table tennis the most and I always played it with my friend!

So I went online and searched for a Wii Table Tennis Racket...and due to shipping charges and restrictions...this is the cheapest I came out with! And it costed more than 20$...

So then I decided to make my own as my parents were not willing to buy it...
And after making it I thought it looked quite good so I decided to share an instructabe on how to make it!

I made two of them so that I can play with my friend! (The second one was better!)

I am sure that there are a lot of audiance out there who play table tennis on their nintendo wii...so this ible will help you play better! And for those who don't know what the Wii or Wii Sports is here are some links!

Step 2: Making the head


First print out a sketch of a lifesize table tennis racket...thencut the head out, and then attach the paper on top of the cardboard.

Then depending on how thick your cardboard is you may have to cut out about 4-6 copies of that printout on to cardboard...then take all of the cardboard pieces and using some hot glue attach the pieces one on top of another.

My cardboard was quite thick so I glued on 4 pieces of the cardboard together.
