U3A Racketball

Regrettably due to a drop in the number of members wishing to play Racketball in the current circumstances the Group has been put ‘on hold’ until Spring 2022. If any members would like to play, either now or in the future, could you please contact me via the Carrier Pigeon

Did you play tennis or squash in your earlier years? Would you like to try Racketball which is similar to squash but not so fast? Would you like a different kind of exercise? If so then why not come along on one of the following dates and give Racketball a try. We meet on alternative Monday afternoons from 3.00-3.45 at Radlett Tennis and Squash Club and play 'round-robin' games. The existing players are varied in age and ability so anyone can feel at home - none of us are experts! If you would like more information then please contact me via the Carrier Pigeon.

Racketball is a fairly strenuous game – a cross between squash and tennis and played on a squash court with a larger ball and larger racket head than a squash racket. Please ensure you are fit enough to play, checking with your doctor if necessary, as the Radlett U3A insurance does not cover personal injury.

We are a small but friendly group who do not take ourselves too seriously so if you would like to give it a go everyone is entitled to two free sessions so if you would like to give it a go then please contact me via the Carrier Pigeon. We meet on alternate Monday afternoons at Radlett Lawn tennis and Squash Club with free parking, opposite Christchurch at 3.00pm. Rackets and balls are supplied – you just need tennis type shoes or trainers. We have three courts booked for 45 minutes – that may not sound long but for us it is quite long enough! The cost is approximately £2 per session payable in blocks as the court bookings are made.

Due to some retirees from the group, we are looking for new members to play sedate Rackets at Radlett Squash club on alternative Mondays at 3pm for 45 minutes. Racquets and balls supplied. We play in tracksuits and it is a lot of fun and exercise in a short space of time. Plenty of free parking too. Contact Fiona Todd for details.
