Racket Ball


Racket Ball is played on a squash court in some countries. Some countries do have racket ball courts which are a little wider than a squash court.

If squash is too difficult players may find racket ball easier as the ball bounces more, and is bigger.  The racket ball rackets are shorter than squash rackets and a better size for children.

Racket Ball or Racquetball is not part of the World Squash Federation, however, the game has been adopted by many Sports venues throughout the world. This link give hints and playing videos of the game.
