What is Racketball?

Racketball is played on any regular squash court and is similar to squash.

Compared to squash it uses a larger ball that does not need warming up and a shorter racket is used. The rallies last longer and the ball moves slower than in squash giving the opponent more time to react and get to the ball.

Benefits

  • Great cardiovascular and muscular workout

Involvement

You can book a court with a friend or join one of the many social sessions that run every week in clubs and leisure centres. If you want to play more competitively you can join a box league or get involved in a local competition or event.

Equipment

Equipment can normally be hired but if you want your own then you will need a racket and a ball. You will also need suitable footwear due to the constant change in direction.

Campaigns

Coaching Can

Coaching has long been considered to be about the development of skill in a sport. It has been about acquiring, honing and transferring these skills in the pursuit of athletic achievement.
