Going for Parahna Court?
Obtaining this cool-looking court is very easy when you know how to do it.

All you have to do is use someone quick that has good cross-court shots. I suggest Yoshi for this.

What you need to do is hit the ball to the opposite side of the court that they are in, and keep doing that when they run to get the last shot. Just keep getting them running from side to side. Also, use the A+B shot or the A shot. They work the best.
