The Sport

The sport originates in the United States one winter in 1949 when Joe Shocheck decided to practice tennis in a handball court. By modifying tennis equipment and taking particularities of different sports, racquetball was created. The objective is to make the ball bounce twice on the floor, although it can bounce on the walls and ceiling, before the opponent can hit it, thus achieving a point if it was being served or a change if the player was receiving. It is played between two or four people. The best of three sets of 15 points, wins. The court consists of four walls with roof and its measures are: 2 meters wide, 20 meters high and 40 meters long.
