Racquetball is played inside a four wall court, which
includes a ceiling that is in play. Two, three or four
players may play at once. The object is to return the ball
to the front wall before the ball bounces twice on the
floor, using any combination of back wall, side walls or
ceiling. If the ball bounces twice on the floor or a players
return shot hits the floor before the front wall, the
opponent wins the rally. Points are scored by the server
only. If the serving team. loses the rally they "side
and become the receiver for the next serve. Racquets are
similar to tennis, but half the length. The ball is the size
of a tennis ball but a third the weight and made from very
bouncy rubber which "fly's" all over the court.
Racquetball is the easiest of all racquet sports to learn.
If you can play tennis, badminton or squash, you already
have the skills to play racquetball.
Wallyball is very similar to volleyball and is played inside
our racquetball courts. Volleyball net is attached in the
middle of the court between the side walls, which is
adjustable to a lower 5 foot height for younger player's
ages 3 and older. Choice of "soft " larger play
ball or regular volleyball. Regular court fees apply. No
extra charge for net or ball use. Depending on the age and
skills, different rules are used. Regular rules are similar
to volleyball, except the side walls are playable. Younger
and pre-school age players are allowed to let the ball
bounce "catch and throw" as needed. No prior
skills needed to play Wallyball.
No guest fees charged to play racquetball. A resident or
member must accompany non-resident non-members.
Equipment rentals are available at the Fitness Center Desk.
Racquets rentals are $2 each; eye guards and loaner balls are
