Rules of Racketball

Eight basic rules of Racketball:

1. Racketball Equipment
Racketball is played between two players on a squash court using a racketball racket, and a racketball ball and non-marking shoes.

2. Scoring
Matches are the best of 3 or 5 games. Each game is point a rally scoring to 11. If the score in a game is tied at 10-10, a player must win by 2 clear points.

3. How to win points
Points can be scored be either player. When a player fails to serve or to make a good return, the opponent wins the point. When the receiver wins a point, they become the server and add one to their score.

4. Service
The ball must be dropped and must be served direct on to the front wall. On its return, it must fall to the floor within the back quarter of the court opposite to the server’s box.

5. Play
After a good serve, the players return the ball alternately until one or other fails to make a good return.

6. A good return
A return is good if the ball, before it has bounced twice on the floor, is returned by the striker on to the front wall without touching the floor, provided the ball is not hit twice, or out, or touches the tin.

7. Lets
If a player thinks they may hit their opponent with the ball or racket or the ball hits their opponent, ‘STOP’ and play a let. You then replay the point.

8. Freedom to play the ball
After playing a ball, a player must make every effort to get out of their opponents way.
