There are a few common issues that seem to come up again and again as we observe players dinking technique during play.

Most of them could be fixed pretty easily with a little attention and drilling.

Most people are simply unaware that a few little tweaks could improve their dinking considerably.

With that in mind we came up with this video on the 5 Keys To Successful Dinking.

Check it out and make sure that you’re doing all 5 as you dink.

    Thank you for this video – I have been practising. I am beginning to play with some good players and although my dinks land in the non-volley zone, and they are not too high over the net, they seem to be attackable. Any suggestions?

    Listen I see the ball but when do we use the pickles do we throw them at each other or the winner eats one?

    Good video and great tips. However, it would have been better if you listed all those tips are the end.

  4. Chris Casner on October 27, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Please summarize the points at the end.

    1) The Grip
    Continental handshake
    2) Swing Path
    Low to High
    consistent motion
    take ball in front of body
    short Back swing
    short follow through
    3) Use your legs
    get low to the ball
    move your feet
    4) Net Clearance
    significant margin over net
    5) Hit it in the Kitchen
    limits opponents offensive opportunity

    9 out of 10 dinks for me are long. It is a very delicate balance between overshooting and hitting the net. Annoying as hell. You make it look sooo easy. Great video.

  10. Angelika McKinley on October 27, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    Very well explained and demonstrated 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  11. Gabe Anderson on October 27, 2021 at 7:34 pm
