Racketball Balls

There are two types of racketball- blue and black.

The most popular racketball ball is the blue racketball ball. This ball is perfect for social play and can be used in club competitions. It is slightly bouncier than the black racketball ball, which are used mainly in events such as the National Racketball Championships. The Black racketball ball has a single or a double dot and is slightly slower. 

If you are new to the sport, or just fancy having a hit with a friend, start off with a blue racketball. If, after a few games, you find it too easy, you can then progress to using a black ball.

The recommendations on which ball to use from the ESR(England Squash & Racketball) are:

  • Elite players competing in national championships, regional and county premier leagues should be encouraged to play with the black ball.
  • Players competing in leagues below premier leagues should use the blue ball, unless both players agree/prefer to use the black.
  • All recreational players should use the blue ball.

Racketball, a fast-paced racquet sport played in an enclosed court, holds immense importance for various reasons. This exhilarating game offers countless physical, mental, and social benefits, making it a favourite among sports enthusiasts worldwide.

At its core, racketball is a highly effective cardio workout. The combination of sprinting, lunging, and pivoting involved significantly boosts cardiovascular endurance and helps maintain a healthy weight. With each swing and movement, muscles throughout the body are engaged, specifically targeting the legs, core, and upper body. This dynamic workout not only strengthens muscles but also improves flexibility, coordination, and balance.

Besides its physical advantages, racketball also offers numerous mental benefits. The fast-paced nature of the game demands quick decision-making and strategic thinking, enhancing cognitive skills like focus, concentration, and problem-solving. Players must constantly assess their opponent's movements, anticipate shots, and execute effective placement strategies to outwit their challenger. Playing racketball serves as a mental workout, improving reaction time, agility, and spatial awareness.
