If you have never played racquetball, you are about to begin the most exciting sport you have ever seen.
After 15 minutes on the treadmill, if you are like me, you begin to notice the pain and start watching the clock..
You are thinking "how much longer do I have to do this".. In racquetball, you watch the clock, but it is with the exact opposite motivation!
In racquetball, you think "how much longer do I have the court reserved for because I could do this ALL DAY!".
So, the main reason to play racquetball is because it is unbelieveably fun!
You should play racquetball because it is extremely good exercise.
According to NutriStrategy,
playing racquetball for one hour is the equivalent of jogging/running 6 miles (in an hour).
That is a pretty good workout to be so much fun!
You should play racquetball because it is a life-time sport.
There are age divisions in the tournaments, and players often play into their 70's! or more!
You only need 2 people, not a whole bunch of people to play. This makes it simple to get a match any time!
No external organization is necessary as in most sport leagues, but a challenge ladder sure helps! :)
You should play racquetball because you will soon have many new friends!
You will be spending a lot of time, often under pressure with your opponent, and there is something about that which encourages friendship, "most of the time"... :)
You will not only gain local friends, but if you play tournaments you will make lasting friendships with players around your state, surrounding states, and across the country.
If you are into "Extreme", you should play racquetball! It doesn't have to be that way, but it is more fun when it is!
To see what I mean by extreme, check out these pros in action and you'll know.
Most people don't play close to that level, but are soon passionate about the sport and play to their own level of extreme.
You should play racquetball because it is relatively inexpensive.
There are many free places to play, but often it does require a club membership somewhere.
Clubs often have equipment that can be checked out.
Purchasing equipment isn't too expensive, especially at the introductory level.
