No way I'm paying for a game I got for free with the Wii, but maybe I'll buy it with my spare digital deluxe promotion points

spare digital deluxe promotion points... what is that?!

Well since I got a Wii U deluxe, I get 10% of the purchase back whenever I buy anything from the eShop. This is the digital deluxe promotion.
More info here: https://p.nintendo.net/deluxe/
The process is recurring too! If I buy a game for $59.99, I get 599 points back. That converts to $5.99, and if I buy something that's $5.99, I can get 59 points back, etc.
I have nearly 4000 points right now (which is about $40), so I have a nice backup if I ever want a game but don't have enough money!

I'm really excited for this. I'm not really a download version game type of person but this one is something I would love to have as a download with the whole hub type set up. with that I have a few thoughts.

I'm okay with the price it seems like a fair deal with the added benefit you can choose which games you want and which ones you don't.
I can see them continually adding sports to this all of the Wii Sports and Resort games and a plethora of new games as well.
However once more than 5 or 6 games come out I can see why price would be an issue with the example if you want ten sports it would
run you 100$ but knowing Nintendo I'm sure they will start selling the games in bundles to reduce cost once there are enough games or even offer a sort of season pass to get all new sports that will be released or even give you a reduced price on other sports depending on how many you have already paid for.

Also once a good number of sports have been released for the Sports Club, I can see Nintendo looking at the most purchased and most played sports and making a physical copy (or digital copy in a Wii U bundle) as a starter kit so to speak of those most popular games and giving people the option to buy more sports if they want as DLC.

Plus unlike the other two major consoles having not to pay a constant price for online play on it's own makes this a good deal.
Also with the simplistic play style of these games it will give Nintendo a chance to continue to improve their online capabilities for more demanding online games in the future.

I just hope that Nintendo continues to make the Sports Club better and better by adding new sports every few months or more often if they can do it.

I'll probably just get tennis and boxing, since those were my favourite. I hope more people will appreciate boxing with motion plus, since it seemed like that was the one game people complained the most about the motion controls. I usually didn't have a problem unless I was punching too rapidly.

I really hope that's the case, that this is an experiment for a new online gaming infrastructure. With Mario Kart and SSB coming out, it would be great if they made the online very organized and do away with the inherent problems of online play: quitters, cheaters, trash-talking, and imbalanced opponent matching.

I imagine this is precisely what it is. An experiment in branching out the Miiverse infrastructure and figuring out new ways to bring that special Nintendo "Charm" to the world of online multiplayer/competitive play. The whole 24-Hour "Clubroom" structure will be interesting to experiment as well, as I imagine it'll make for a much more personal experience as you communicate with fellow club members, even when they're potentially strangers

I just played online for my first time! It's VERY nice! I also love the commands you can say, and how you can change them.
They'll probably add more sports by the time going. I hope they add a retail version with full access from the starts, and the new sports get free. When all that happens, I might play this game every day!
Edit:
Alright, I noticed something incredibly stupid with Tennis. Your guy will stand with his racket to his right, if I point my Wiimote right, and vice versa. They problem is, 1: It takes too long for him to change position, right to left, left to right, and 2: After I've hit the ball (right handed), I go from pointing the Wiimote right then left, because of the swing. I always forget to turn back, so when I return the ball, my guy screws it all up... This sucks so incredibly hard.
Plays another round...
Alright so I got used to it, BUT NOW THE BALL WENT THROUGH ME TWICE.
I'm having mixed feelings about this, but it's still fun.
Edit 2:
Oh, and the Miis look super weird ._.

Hmm, I haven't really had any problems with Tennis. I noticed the changing of left to right, but I liked that, because if I recall correctly, that was done automatically in the Wii version.

"We're doubtful that a future update to Wii Sports Club will open up worldwide play and communities that can play each other regardless of continent"

Anyone tried playing COD from UK with Aussie people? It's impossible! Same thing with Tennis. So please Nintendolife understand that
tennis is fast paced game like COD and it can't be played between continents without LAG. Due high distances latency (ping grows beyond 150 to 250 which is too much)

PAL region lock is the best solution where Australians need to pick their OWN club.

Someone will say "BUT HOW DOES MARIO KART WII WORKS" well It's technically very different game with very different online mechanics.

IIRC, that last Iwata Asks made it clear they already had a lot of difficulty getting the online to work well with what they were trying to accomplish in the game. Especially considering Nintendo's use of TEH SOCIAL is based heavily on communicating with words on Miiverse (ok admittedly drawings tend to try to overshadow that but still!), I don't find much issue in the casual tennis game not connecting to different continents. Especially with the club emphasis.

The online works brilliantly with Bowling but being in Australia and in Perth it gets pretty bad in Tennis. Not that I'm that bothered by it, I was always into the turn based games in Wii Sports more than the live action ones. Very much looking forward to Golf online! Maybe even Archery? Both would be great.

Now that I have the trial and played through Tennis and Bowling, I'm happy with it. Bowling is just as fun as ever and actually better considering there's new challenge games. I was rusty on Tennis at first but got better enough to try online, but it didn't work out. I got a guy from Connecticut and I'm from Indiana and we barely got through pointing on the screen before we shut off. Oh, well; I'll be buying Bowling, but I'll still consider Tennis.

Online play has worked perfectly for me, except for maybe my actual playing :) but anyway a couple of questions, is there a way to tell if your "Online Banter" actually got sent, and 2 can you send more personal messages that will keep it within the game and not through miiverse. They really should have added voice support.

I'm perfectly happy with this game. My only gripe is that there is no choice for a rematch. I would have loved to have been able to have a rematch with people in tennis or bowling.

Can someone clear up two things:
1. Does the free trial begin when you download it or when you first start playing it? I'm pretty sure it's the latter, I just want to make sure.
2. Exactly how big is it? They said 1.3 GB, but when I went on the eShop it said it was only 40 MB. I ask because at the bigger size I won't have enough free space left for both this and Wii Fit U, and my wife really wants Wii Fit U so I will have to put this off until I get an external hard drive (hopefully at Christmas).
