Abstract

Since 1950, when Joe Sobek put strings on his paddleball paddle, the sport of racquetball has grown to the point where it has attained international status. Today, racquetball is played in 57 countries. It has been granted representation on the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and is under consideration as a future Olympic sport, possible as early as the 1992 games. In spite of its rapid and international growth, racquetball remains a relatively new sport,on which very little research has been reported.
