Edgy Dink

In this YouTube video, your author – initially off-screen to the left, wearing a safari hat, drops an easy dink into the opponent’s kitchen, well to his left. This causes him to struggle a bit in returing the ball, so he pops it up a bit high. My partner, expecting that, then sends an easy smash to the other opponent’s feet, ending the rally.

When you can place dinks far to a right-handed player’s left, you’ll often win the rally, especially if your partner is aware of what’s going on, and ready to cover the return.
