If you are looking to burn calories while having fun, racquetball might be what you are looking for! This sport is extremely fun, and it is very easy to pick up.

Along with the calorie-burning benefits, playing racquetball has proven to be a total body toner that enhances flexibility and keeps your brain, plus eye-hand coordination sharp!

Racquetball uses a bouncy rubber ball which makes the rallies last longer, as the ball moves slower giving the opponent more time to react and get to the ball. The shorter racket also helps with hand eye coordination making the ball easier to strike. Overall this makes the game much easier to pick up than many other sports like tennis. Racquetball is said to be, “Easy to learn yet difficult to master” which is one of the key factors in the sports recent growth.

According to NutriStrategy, playing racquetball for one hour is the equivalent of running 6 miles (in an hour). That is a pretty good workout to be so much fun!
