Advantages of Racquetball

Racquetball is a relatively new sport with its official debut in 1969. However, its players may be some of the most dedicated in the sporting world. Not only is racquetball fun and competitive, it is great for maintaining cardiovascular health and strengthening the body, since you use nearly all of the muscles in your body during a session. It also requires quick and strategic thinking and increases the connections between the brain and muscle movements, improving mental clarity. It also stimulates stronger hand-eye coordination and eyesight.  These are all very strong drivers for making racquetball an attractive sport.

Disadvantages of Racquetball

The same intensity that creates so many health advantages can result in downsides as well. The quick moves required on the court increase your chance of injury, particularly head and eye injuries.
