How to Play Volleyball : How to Dink a Volleyball


Hey, my name is Addison from Captain Bills
and I’m going to teach you how to dink a volleyball. A couple different ways that you can dink
a volleyball, the most legal way in beach volleyball, is either your fist or you can
use two knuckles or all four of your knuckles, which people call it the cobra or the knuckler.
This is mainly used if a ball’s really tight and you’re scared to get blocked so you want
to poke it over or you want to put it somewhere. What can help to gain your ball control, in
dinking a volleyball, is to just go back and forth with your hands, dinking it like you
normally would. If you do that a couple of times, it would really help your ball control
for playing a game. Indoor volleyball is a little different, you can get away with a
little bit more dinking. One way you can dink in the indoor is you can actually open your
hand and almost lift the ball in a way to put it where you want to put it. In other
words, I could do this and, in indoor volleyball, I could do this but in beach volleyball, that’s
illegal, you have to have your closed hand when you’re dinking a volleyball. That’s how
to dink a volleyball.
