Racketball is the fastest growing racket sport in the country and is extremely popular within the club.
Though it is still a relatively new sport in this country, it is hugely popular. Many people are taking up racketball because it is easier and less demanding to play than squash. It does, however, provide you with a good cardio workout during which you will burn plenty of calories.
An adapted version of the US racketball game, Racketball is played on squash courts and the rules closely follow those of squash. It is very similar to squash in many ways though much easier to pick up. The ball bounces higher than squash, rallies tend to be longer, the games tend to be less competitive and the sport has a very strong social side.
Racketball is suited to everyone. If you’ve played racket sports previously, you’ll be immediately comfortable. Inexperienced racket sport players will pick up the game very quickly too.
