Re: Just took up racquetball
I used to play quite a bit in college. It was my motivation to get to the gym. After my weight lifting routine, an hour of racquetball was my reward. It worked me harder than the weight lifting session and time really flew by b/c it was so much fun.
Practice shots hitting multiple walls. It's a good shot when your opponent is in the back of the court. It takes a lot of momentum off the ball and forces them to dart forward. A good soft drop shot to the rear of the court is good too when your opponent is in the front.
Eye protection, I'm sure you're using it but it just can't be stressed enough.
Just talking about it makes me wanna play again.
