Proposed New Group - Racketball
Racketball is the fastest growing racket sport in the world. It is easy to learn, slower than Squash and Tennis and MUCH gentler on the knees! The beauty of Racketball is that, compared to Squash, it is considerably more "age-friendly". The ball used is a lot larger, a lot bouncier and therefore makes the game much slower. Many people are still playing Racketball in their late seventies and early eighties.

Initial coaching and/or trial session given at Grove Park Squash Club.
If you are interested email: with Racketball as the subject.
