Racketball

Two sessions on Mondays: 9am to 10.30 for experienced players and 10.30am to noon for beginners/improvers. Thursdays for beginnings/improvers 10.30 to noon. Opportunity for beginners, existing or lapsed players to play racketball. More generally an opportunity for physical exercise in a comfortable environment. As an indoor sport, Racketball is a great opportunity to keep fit over the winter and the free coffee after the session makes it a great social activity. Racketball is the UK’s fastest growing sport due to it’s wide appeal to all ages and abilities. It is played on a squash court with very similar rules, but it uses a larger bouncier ball and shorter, bigger rackets. This makes it much easier for beginners to pick up than other sports such as tennis or squash, which is one of the reasons for its recent growth in the UK. Rallies tend to last longer as the ball moves slower, giving you much more time to react and move to the ball. The racketball sessions at Abbeydale are very relaxed with a friendly and welcoming environment. They involve different types of games, along with some tuition and coaching from club coach, Mark Tasker. Mark is on hand to introduce new players to the group and help them learn the rules and get started
