Dinking Strategies

Methodical Approach

  • Higher percentage
  • Pick them apart, move them around
  • Look to go behind –  it doesn’t have to be powerful- dink 1-2 feet behind their feet

Chaos Approach

    • Riskier
    • Buckshot placement – make them scramble

Opponents are Playing Keep Away

  • Not getting the ball
    • Make their target space smaller by scooting over
    • Remember that inserting yourself is more often then not going to be a dink/reset not an attack
    • Watch paddle faces so you don’t get burned behind
  • Only one hitting the ball
    • Mix up your dinks
    • Try not to go super steep cross court if your partner has scooted over
    • Inside foot of opponents is a good spot
