THE DINK SHOT
"One of the most underrated shots in pickleball is the dink shot. In fact many players don't even pay attention to it. However, almost all the top players have the dink shot as part of their game and are very good at it. We can all learn, practice and improve our dink shots. When practicing, dink or strike the ball nice and soft. You want the ball to just clear the net. Don't try to put too much spin or get too cute with it as that will make it more difficult to make a good dink shot. Don't get discouraged if your shots are hitting into the net or seem to go too high. Like the rest of your game it will take time and practice but you can do it! Remember that having a good dink game will make you a better player!"
