Heard of the “Dead” Dink? Should you use it? Find out the answer

The dead dink gets a bum rap on the pickleball courts as well as in pickleball videos and newsletters. It is unfortunate because what is referred to as the dead dink has a definite place in pickleball – particularly in the manner we demonstrate in this this video. Thanks to Tyson for helping us demonstrate the uses of this pickleball dink.

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.
