- Getting Started: The easiest difficulty of all. The CPUs aren't usually trying their best as they let the player win a lot.
- Pro: Another easy difficulty and a bit medium, but is much more of a challenge compared to "Getting Started". The CPUs will often steal the ball from the player and will make a few scores themselves. CPUs are also fast unlike "Getting Started".
- Grandslam Superstar: A hard difficulty where the CPUs become a challenge and will more often will steal the ball and pass it to their team mate. The CPUs are also a tad faster.
- Legendary: The hardest difficulty of all. The CPUs are skilled than never before as they will steal the ball more often and they pass it much farther than before. The CPUs are also faster compared to Grandslam Suprstar so going after CPUs to steal the ball for them is quite a challenge.
