Racketball is the UK’s fastest growing sport! It is played on a squash court and is similar to squash. In racketball, a larger, bouncier ball and a shorter racket are used.
Overall this makes the game much easier to pick up than similar sports like squash or tennis. Racketball is said to be, ‘easy to learn yet difficult to master’ which is one of the key factors in the sports recent growth.
