What is Dinking?

What is Dinking and why do Pickleballers do it? The act of dinking is hitting the Pickleball while generally being as close to the kitchen line as possible, while trying to position the ball just over the net and land in your opponent’s kitchen. The number of dinks per game or per match correlates with the skill level of the players involved. If you watch a match at a 3.0 or 3.5 level, you rarely see the players dink. Once you move up to about a 4.0 level, the number of average dinks per rally is about 5 - 10. When you move up to the 4.5 or 5.0 (professional) level, the number of dinks averages around 20 - 30 dinks per rally with some players getting up to 75 dinks per point! So why is it that the better players generally dink more? Why don't they just power through and get the point quicker? Different players have different reasons, but let's take a deeper look at some of those reasons.
