Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I've recently picked up racquetball, since my gym has a shiny new racquetball court. I haven't played competitively with anyone, but I find it's a good exercise for me, in terms of developing footwork and doing some cardio-based activity.

Anyone else play? Like it? Don't like it? Hate this thread?

Phil | 11694 comments Cover your face and balls, both quite vulnerable on the court.

It's a fun game and a great workout. It's also very hard on your feet if you don't have the right shoes.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I WILL NOT wear goggles. Ever.

Jim | 6485 comments Only tried a couple of times, and it is a work out, and I sucked at it.

message 6: by Gatorman (new)

Gatorman Used to play a lot in high school and college and got to be pretty good at it with a wicked serve. It's a great workout and a lot if fun, but sadly my time is short and cannot fit it into my schedule anymore.

i suck at it too! my overall awkwardness and terrible depth perception make me look like a fool.

i almost didn't see this thread because it was in the sports folder.

Sarah | 13815 comments A friend and I used to try to play in college, but we didn't know the rules or anything. The general tactic was serve and duck.

On a somewhat related note (same ball) my sister has joined a recreational handball league. She made us play this summer, and it was very fun.
