Set your robot on a fairly slow setting (Ball Frequency). Then have 3 or 4 players run around the table (in succession) and alternate hitting shots. Good for building endurance and trains for quick set-up.
(Editor's Note: This simple tip is a great way to involve more than 1 or 2 people with the robot. Make sure the kids know not to run into each other or the robot as they're racing around the table!)
