From Reset to Root Canal

Developing Precision and Variety in Your Dink Shots

With all the hard hitters in the game, the dink is often underappreciated. But it's the key to moving up from the intermediate ranks.

And to really get a handle on the non-volley zone, you've got to mix it up with more than just one kind of dink. With this exclusive training, Three Dinks to Control the NVZ, taught by renowned Coach Sarah Mitten, you'll move from merely playing in the non-volley zone to controlling the kitchen line with precision and confidence. 

Whether it's setting the pace with a cooperative dink, regaining control with a reset dink,  or outmaneuvering opponents with the strategically placed root canal dink this course has been meticulously tailored to deepen your understanding, hone your skills, and elevate your performance.
