Group sports and recreation, like Racquetball, are fun for all and makes 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, take a lesson or just drop -in on a game for friendly competition in a supportive environment. Group sports and recreation is fun for all and makes for a healthier lifestyle.

We offer lessons for all ages. One-hour private racquetball lessons teach fundamentals of the game, including information about strokes, strategies, and scoring.


In the fall and spring, the YMCA offers league play for players of all ability levels. We are now offering a youth league as well! Sign up your child and have them bring a friend. Coach Roy would love the opportunity to teach young players the game of racquetball. When signing up, please indicate which league interests you. You can sign up for the Men’s A, AB, B, BC, C, D, Women’s League or Youth League.

Our Spring League begins March 1 and Fall League begins September 21.

Drop-in Nights

Enjoy the camaraderie of playing with other racquetball enthusiasts by coming out on our regularly scheduled drop-in nights. Three courts are reserved on Wednesday and Friday nights from 6-8pm and on Saturday from 10am-Noon. These challenge court times are for members only.


In February, we have our famous Winter Classic Tournament for singles and doubles, and in April we have our Doubles Tournament. Both tournaments are for members and non-members of all ages.


Proper eyewear is strongly encouraged at all times while in the racquetball courts. Coach Roy would never enter the court without his goggles firmly in place!


If you would like to try the game of racquetball, you can borrow racquets, balls and goggles at the Health and Wellness kiosk. This is located upstairs in the fitness center. Make sure your racquets have straps on them and your eyes have goggles!
