The Hardest Shot to Master In Pickleball

We believe the most challenging shot to master in pickleball is the drop shot, specifically the third shot drop. Let’s Break it Down

  1. Third Shot Drop:
    • The third shot drop occurs after the serve and the return of serve.
    • Making this shot, the pickleball is hit with a soft and precise touch.
  2. Why Is It Difficult?:
    • The third shot drop requires finesse and control.
    • You need just enough spin to keep the ball low to the net.
  3. Cross-Court Dink:
    • While not as commonly discussed, the cross-court dink is also one of the most brutally effective shots in pickleball.
    • It involves sending a dink stroke from one side of the court to the opposite side of your opponent’s court.
    • Mastering the cross-court dink can be frustrating, but it’s crucial for strategic play.
