Racketball championships 2008/2009


The Club recently changed its name to reflect the fact that more and more racketball is being played at the club. Racketball is very similar to Squash but played with a bigger racket and ball. The game is less strenuous on the joints although rallies can be quite a bit longer. The game has certainly prolonged life on court for a number of our older ex-squash players. The club has organised a number of racketball tournaments and are keen on playing other clubs.

Because the ball and racket are bigger, Racketball is an easier game to pick up than squash and very soon long rallies can be achieved by most players. Because the ball is bigger it does not hurt as much if you are unfortunate to get in the way of a well struck ball. Very often games will be played with 3 or 4 players on court, each taking their turn to play their stroke.

The Club played its first competitive Racketball match in November 2006 against East Gloucester in the National Racketball Club Championships.
