Merriam-Webster defines dink as “a couple with two incomes and no children”
Wait, let me keep scrolling. Ok, here it is…
“Dink is to hit with a drop shot, probably of imitative origin”
That sounds better.
So, you’re in a dink rally. Don’t know what a dink rally is? Let me check the dictionary again:

A dink rally happens when opponents continuously hit soft, low, short shots back and forth over the net. How do you win a dink rally or at least get out of one?
Patience you must have, my young Padawan- Yoda
How do you win a dink rally?
1. Mix up cross court and across the net shots.Yes, it’s easier to hit it cross court because there is more room to hit your shot, but it also keeps your opponent guessing when you hit it to your opponent in front of you.

Last week, the USAPA rolled out their new player rating system. The UTPR (USAPA Tournament Player Ratings) was established to have a more accurate assessment of all players.
With the previous or legacy system, the ratings were based on tournament directors and each player’s own ratings. (Surely no one would play down a level, would they?)
With tournaments getting bigger and more players entering the sport, it became difficult to track everyone correctly.
The UTPR is comprised using up to 3 years of tournament history from pickleballtournaments.com. It’s based on past performance and will help in seeding future tournaments.
