Pickleball's HARDEST Dinking Drill

by The Dink Media Team on

When I fell in love with pickleball I vowed to never pick up a tennis racket again. I downloaded every episode of the Tennis Sucks podcast and turned all the fuzzy balls in my garage into dog toys.

Now some guy named Zane Navratil wants me to break my vow to improve my dink game. Sounds like a hoax to me.

In a new video, Zane demonstrates how drilling with a tennis racket can help build good habits on the pickleball court.

The strings of a tennis racket launch the ball in comparison to a typical paddle. This makes it hard to control your dinks and keep the ball unattackable.

Using such an oversized weapon forces you to use good fundamentals to control the ball. That means:

  • Eliminate the backswing 
  • Loosen the grip
  • Steady the wrist

These three components alone will add consistency to your game. Dust off the old racket and watch Zane explain the drill here.
