      About Raquetball - Racquetball is a unique sport. Unlike most racquet sports, there is no net to hit the ball over and no tin to hit the ball above. Also, the court's walls, floor and ceiling are legal playing surfaces with only the upper part of the back wall (above 12 feet) being out-of-bounds.
