Racketball

Ebbisham Information Flyer

Gill (Beginners Racketball Group Leader) says:

“I went along to a 'Try Racketball' course four years ago. At the end of the 6x1 hour course, Jo set up a beginner's racketball group. There were four of us. I took over as contact for the group. I persuaded my husband to come along to swell the numbers to 5. Four and a half years later we are still all beginners (due to the fact we have no natural talent), a membership of 20 (attendance averaging 12-15 per week), with a social gathering that follows in the local cafe for nearly as long again as the initial racketball session.
Anyone can turn up and give it a try without sky-high session fees or potentially intimidating expectations of ability so they know they have found the right place for them.
I also have joined the mixed racket group as well since giving up work. The same sentiments apply to this group.
So, in summary, Ebbisham Sports Club gives an opening to those who have not got natural ability to participate, enjoy, reap the health and social benefits of sport, which I have not found to be available in ANY other club within 5 miles of Epsom.
WHY IS THIS CLUB UNIQUE, INSTEAD OF THE NORM?!!”

________________________________________

RACKETBALL is a gentle cross between tennis and squash but is played indoors on a squash court.
It is played with short rackets and a bouncy ball which is easier to strike and is easier to learn than tennis, squash or badminton.
Good cardiovascular exercise, great fun for both men and women, all ages and abilities.

Ebbisham Sports Club, a friendly not-for-profit Community Club in Epsom, runs 50+ RACKETBALL DROP-IN SESSIONS as follows:
