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?
