Racketball at Redland

At Redland Green, we have a growing racketball community who play in regular box games.

Racketball is the UK’s fastest growing sport and is played on a regular squash court. It is similar to squash albeit a shorter racket and a larger ball is used. 

The fact that the ball is bigger, more bouncy and does not need warming up means that the rallies last longer meaning you get a great cardio workout on the court as the ball moves slower giving the opponent more time to react and get to the ball. The shorter racket also helps with hand eye coordination making the ball easier to strike. Overall this makes the game much easier to pick up than many other sports like squash or tennis. Racketball is said to be, “Easy to learn yet difficult to master” which is one of the key factors in the sports recent growth.

We have regular weekly lunchtime social session on a Tuesday from 12:45pm-2.30pm.
