CourseGraphic Racquetball is a racquet sport played with a hollow rubber ball in an indoor or outdoor court. Joseph Sobek is credited with inventing the modern sport of racquetball in 1950, adding a stringed racquet to paddleball in order to increase velocity and control. Unlike most racquet sports, such as tennis and badminton, there is no net to hit the ball over, and, unlike squash, no tin to hit the ball above. Also, the court's walls, floor, and ceiling are legal playing surfaces, with the exception of court-specific designated hinders being out-of-bounds. This course is an introduction to racquetball as a recreational sport, designed to assist students in acquiring basic skills, developing aerobic, and / or anaerobic fitness levels, while actively participating in racquetball activities.

By the end of this course, students should be able to....
1. Demonstrate their knowledge of racquetball rules of play.
2. Utilize appropriate racquetball equipment such as eye protection, racquetballs, racquets, and athletic wear.
3. Increase their individual skill level in racquetball.
4. Demonstrate safe play during warm-up, play, and cool down.
5. Practice appropriate sportsmanship during play.
