History: Invented by Joe Sobek in 1948, Racquetball is a combination of the games of Squash and Handball. It involves two competitors, relatively small rackets, a hollow rubber ball, and a playing area contained with a room in which the wall, ceiling, and floor are all in-play. Health Clubs started embracing the game shortly after its inception, thanks to its convenience as an indoor sport and considerable fitness benefits. Racquetball's future looks bright, with competitive leagues and just-for-fun classes both increasing in popularity in the 21st century.
