Racketball is THE growing sport being actively taken up by seniors. We are keen to promote it, having found the non-sporty and those who have forgotten they were are enjoying the exercise. Racketball is played on a squash court but the racket and ball are similar in size to those used in tennis so the game is slower than squash and is appropriate for all ages and abilities.
We provide coaching sessions and loan of equipment. Court hire £4.00/hr - cost shared by members and is usually around £2 each per hour.
Weekly, Thursdays 3.00 to 4.00 pm (but please check as times may vary). Wimbledon Lakeside Squash Club, Church Road, Wimbledon SW19 5AG (entrance opposite the All England Lawn Tennis Club). 493 bus.

Christmas Lunch 2015

Just a few of our regular Racketball players: still competing but over curry, wine & beer at South Kerala food specialist restaurant, Cocum, Raynes Park. Just one of a few such get togethers over the year which we train for !

We do our gentle, good fun training by hitting a bouncy ball against walls. We do it on Thursdays, 3pm at Wimbledon Club, Church Street. It gives us the right stamina and fortitude for our get togethers !

Why not try it yourself ?
