Racketball

The football pitches are still unplayable, going out running requires wellie boots, and cycling is an exercise in navigating around rivers and lakes. So why not take your exercise indoors?

Racketball is a fast growing sport in the UK suitable for all ages from 7 to 70+ years — so its a fab family game. It provides a great workout and can be played all year round, regardless of the weather. So why not take your winter exercise indoors?

Tattenhall Racket Club play on the squash courts at the Flacca which have recently been re-decorated.
It's a game for two players who hit the ball alternately against the wall of the court.
It can also be played by 3 people (where it becomes a little more interesting).

The ball is quite bouncy and about the size of a tennis ball.
The rackets are like a tennis racket but with a shorter handle.
Racketball is easy to learn — most people can be playing a game after just 10 minutes!

Come down to the club between 5pm and 6pm on any Monday or Thursday to see what it's all about or have a go!

Why not bring a friend? We welcome beginners and experienced players alike. Or get in touch to find out more.
