Racketball is one of the UK's fastest growing racket sports which is both easy to learn and addictive to play. It's a great start to introducing you to (or back to) the racket and ball game and at broadlands we play it on our squash courts (as most clubs do not have specific racketball courts). Absolutely anyone can play, adults and juniors, old or young, beginner or pro.
The game is a great way to get fit and meet new people and is really easy to learn too. For more information you can look at UK Racketball www.uk-racketball.com or you can link through to England Squash and Racketball www.englandsquashandracketball.com.
We have an ever-growing racketball section here at Broadland Sports Club and there is something for everyone and every standard from junior to adult player. The club has been formally affiliated to England Squash and Racketball for many years and has achieved the Silver Clubmark accreditation.
We have an annual Club Championships, run an internal league and arrange intercounty and interclub social matches, liaising closely with other clubs within the County. We also have a club team that participates in the Norfolk Squash league. More info on this team league can be found on the Norfolk Squash Website www.norfolksquash.com. Some of our players take part in intercounty matches and have recently ventured into the national competitions to test their skills.
So, whether you are planning to take up the sport for the first time or looking for a social game once in a while, to having regular league games and competitions, or training and coaching, our players and coaches will be more than welcoming to you.
