    How do I best defend against deeper dinks so I don’t have a late contact point? Do I basically volley or step back temporarily? Or are there other options for dealing with it?

    Thank you. I like your videos. But the pinging sound is a little annoying

    I feel like the initial bad example has to be a teaching related activity. Nobody I play with even the good people get into super extended dinking rallies. People are pretty quick to attack (with nondinks) in my experience. Nobody is just dinking around for very long.

    Great tips! Thank you, Jordan and Katrina, for doing these videos. I hope to someday be in a place where I’m not always trying to defend myself!

    don’t know how I didn’t find PB till now but can’t wait to give it a try… but I do have a question , as far as swing is concerned, front or side arm, then back hand, I come from playing paddle ball up against a wall, also playing doubles.. we use the same swings except if you don’t want to backhand, you can switch hands to hit the ball ,can we do this with pickleball?? P.S. Thanks for the videos over on PRIMETIME PICKLEBALL, That’s how I found you here, subbed to both.

    Now this was just great. Good work Jordan.

    I have a question for you, Jordan. Occasionally, I have notice that after someone has seen I can handle their regular low serve with my slice return, they switch to doing a lob serve. For these, should I slice them or is this a time for top spin? Moreover, if I should add topspin should I switch from continental to eastern or is that unnecessary?

    Awesome, thank you!

    Helpful video! Thank you. Would love to see you break down various cross court dink configuration placement, strategy, etc. in a future video.

    Useful tips, will try it out next time I’m on the court. Thanks Jordan !

    excellent content and demonstrations.
    it made me realize how the really advanced players continually put pressure on me by varying their dink depths and spins ect.
    Jordan, would you consider doing a video how to best handle these advanced dinkers?
