Over the years, a large number of instructors have contributed video training lessons for racquetball on YouTube. Recently, PencilTree.com created a new website that organizes all of those lessons by subject. This site can save you hours of searching if you really just need a bit more information on how to hit that perfect splat.
Check it out!
Videos from Fran Davis, Shawn Royster, Ben Croft, Racquetball Warehouse, Cliff Swain, Ektelon, Aaron Embry, Marty Hogan, Kim Roy Hardison, Jo Shattuck, Malia Bailley, Leo Vasquez, Tim Woodward, Jim Winterton, John Ellis, Rocky Carson, Kris Odegard, Jordan Kahn, and more are included.
Are you a Georgia player attending the USA Racquetball National Singles Championships? There are already 107 players registered for that event which will take place in Highlands Ranch (Denver), Colorado. The registration deadline for this event is Friday May 6th. ($20 late registration fee allows registration thru May 13th)
This yearly event has added a full range of skill based doubles divisions.
College campuses are frequently the first exposure a young person will have to the game of racquetball. Some colleges will have racquetball as a class that can be taken for physical education credit. Others will have intramural leagues and even club teams that play against other colleges. The GRPA supports collegiate racquetball in all of its many forms and has added a page to help connect those athletes. Let us know if you attend (or work at or teach at) a college or university that isn’t on our list. All of the facilities have also been added to the Courts page.
There are a number of racquetball leagues held throughout the year at facilities all around Georgia. Are you taking advantage of these leagues to increase your exposure to other players with different styles and abilities?
LA Fitness 12 week leagues (weekdays) start up the first and second week of May
Recreation ATL 5 week league (Saturdays) starts up April 23rd
If you know of other leagues that are going on, use the Contact page to let us know so that we can add it to our Leagues page and help promote racquetball near you!
