Racquetball

The Game

- Racquetball is described as a cross between the games of tennis and squash. It's played on a standard squash court, but unlike squash, uses a bigger and bouncier ball. As the racquet has a longer head and a shorter handle it is easy to play with and if you haven't played racquet sports before, racquetball is a great way to start.

- Described as an excellent fat-burner, racquetball encourages longer rallying, giving you sustained aerobic activity. The game will also improve your hand-eye co-ordination skills as the ball bounces around the walls of the court.

- You can play singles or double and mixed play is very popular. People of all ages can get onto a court and play ball. If you've played squash or tennis before and are looking for a similar game that's easier on the body, or perhaps a beginner wanting to try an indoor sport that's easy to play, then Racquetball is a perfect fit for you.
