Group sports and recreation, like Racquetball, are fun for all and make for a healthier lifestyle

Challenge yourself! Whether you are a beginner or a power player, there is a place for you to have fun on the racquetball courts at the Y. We have 3 racquetball courts located on the lower level in our main facility. Join a league or just drop -in on a game for friendly competition in a supportive environment.
