Re: Just took up racquetball
Now I've got the bug again myself. I love it but am currently without facilities or playing partners.
I would say one thing is that it is really much more about quickness and anticipation of angles and possible trajectories than anythingl. Being fast helps, but I was destroyed in multiple games by portly people who could locate their shots and pretty much feel out everything I was going to do.
One thing to work on is the serve. Develop a decent serve that engages the wall fairly close to where they will be forced to hit. Sometimes the ball will completely die with no return possible but otherwise the goal is to keep them from getting a completely squared up free shot on the return. Some people also really like the lob shot to the back that dies in teh back corner, that one has been deadly to me at times.
