Racquetball is a racquet sport usually played indoors in an enclosed court. Other variations of racquetball can be played on one, two, or three walled courts outdoors. Racquetball is an offshoot of squash, which is popular in the European countries. The racquets are shorter than tennis racquets and the ball is made of rubber. Racquetball is a fast and exciting game which has turned many players into hopeless, hardbodied addicts of the sport. Because of its starting and stopping characteristics, racquetball is not considered to be an "aerobic" sport by definition, although it definitely can contain an element of aerobic exercise.

Racquetball is a racquet sport played with a hollow rubber ball in an indoor or outdoor court. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Racquetball is a racquet sport played with a hollow rubber ball in an indoor or outdoor court. Joseph Sobek is credited with inventing the modern sport of racquetball in 1950, adding a stringed racquet to paddleball in order to increase velocity and control. Unlike most racquet sports, such as tennis and badminton, there is no net to hit the ball over, and, unlike squash, no tin to hit the ball above. Also, the court's walls, floor, and ceiling are legal playing surfaces, with the exception of court-specific designated hinders being out-of-bounds.
