Racquetball, also called paddleball, is a sport played on a court where the opposing player must hit a ball after it has passed the receiving line. The game is based on squash, yet uses smaller rackets than squash. The rubber ball must first hit the front wall, and cannot bounce twice against the floor. The rally is won once the opposing player fails to hit the ball, and the game is won after an individual wins two out of three sets. Players often cover 3,650 feet due to the high amount of movement during the game.

How do you play racquetball?

Racquetball is played in an indoor court and involves 2 players. The goal is to get 15 points by hitting the ball towards the wall in a way that the ball bounces twice for the opponent. Gathering points can only be done by a server and a server only gets two chances before he gives up his turn.

How many calories does racquetball burn?

Racquetball is a game of athleticism, quickness, and agility. You need impeccable hand-eye coordination and cardiovascular stamina to chase and dodge the ball. With a casual 30-minute game can burn 250 calories for a 150-pound person (68 kilograms). Intensifying the game, and you can burn close to 350 calories in 30-minutes.

What is the difference between squash and racquetball?

Squash rackets and balls are smaller than racquetball. Another difference is that there is an “out of bounds” area on the squash court and there isn’t once in racquetball. In both sports, some rules are similar, yet the scoring limit is different: squash is scored up to 9 points and racquetball matches are scored to 15.

Racquetball Court
Side elevation drawing of a Racquetball Court measured with court length and height

A Racquetball Court is a three or four sided rectangular room of play with three distinct floor areas and fully playable surfaces used in the sport of Racquetball. Similar to a handball or squash court, most games are played in the receiving area of the court. Just beyond the receiving area and receiving line is the safety zone. Beyond the safety zone and the short line is the service area, which is flanked by screen lines and the doubles boxes. Unlike a squash court, there are no line markings on the front wall, and therefore all surfaces are playable throughout the court.

Racquetball Courts have an overall length of 40’ (12.19 m) and width of 20’ (6.1 m) for a total area of 800 ft² (74.3 m²). The front wall of a Racquetball Court must have a minimum height of 20’ (6.1 m) while the back wall has a minimum height of 12’ (3.66 m). The surface of a Racquetball Court is marked with a service line 15’ (4.57 m) from the front wall, followed by a short line at 20’ (6.1 m) and a receiving line of 25’ (7.62 m).
