Dink Strategy Secrets: Calculating Risk vs Reward


Not all dink strategies are created equal. You need to understand the risk vs reward.

Learn to differentiate risk depending on the side of the court you are playing on.

High risk is a shot that has a lower margin for being successful, so it’s a shot that’s going barely over the net or a shot that you’re trying to hit a zinger.

A low risk shot would be a safer, nice high arc dink over the net. Very safe shot.

Watch the full video as I show you how to differentiate the two risks.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
