Racquetball for all levels - What's yours?
I've been a member of the club before
So much has changed around the Club in recent times and you'll love seeing all the new and old players having a ball. The social club has re-formed and there's plenty of action at the courts most nights of the week. Why not pop back in for a hit over the spring and see for yourself.
I've never played racquetball
Come and play our casual Wednesday night round robin for beginners to see if you're up for the challenge, the first night is free and we've got a coach on hand to get you into the game.
If you've played Tennis, Badminton or other racket sports you'll likely feel comfortable swinging the racket and be playing competitive racquetball in no time at all.
Check out this video on Youtube to get a feel of the game here
I've played before but it's been a while
If you're new to Bendigo Squash Club then you'll want to drop us a line to organise a hit, that way we can asses your ability and get you started on the appropriate competition night. Our beginners round robin on Wednesday night (from 6 pm) and club practice on Sunday (at 6 pm) are great options to get back into it and see where you're at.
