Racketball is the UK's fastest growing sport and has been becoming increasingly popular with our members. We have 5 glass backed well maintained squash courts on which to play on and a fantastic viewing area for anyone wanting to come down and support our league matches.
What is Racketball?
Racketball is like squash but a lot easier to play and is the easiest of the Racket Sports to pick up. Although it is played on a squash court the scoring and rules are different. The racket is shorter, with a bigger head and the ball is much bigger and bouncier meaning it's easier to hit the ball and the rallies go on for much longer.
It is a great sport to burn calories and get fit while improving your reflexes and your hand-eye coordination.
We can offer both social and competitve play to our members.
