DINK-A-THON CHALLENGE  

Grab a partner and practice your dinking skills. Keep a count of how many times you can keep the ball going without it bouncing more than once from the kitchen area only. If you can reach 50 or more dinks, let the front staff at the Essig Recreation Center know so we can add your name to the Dinking Challenge list. This challenge is great to learn control and what a great way to practice.
