Pickleball Pro Dave Weinbach on the "Impact Zone" when dinking
Using a grip strength of 3 out of 10, we want to dink, cut off the angles, and use our feet well as we move. Most of all, we want to RESPECT the net! Get it over! Allow 8-12 inches above the net to dink. And dinking cross court is your best bet to allow room for error.
