Recreation Center: Why Racquetball Makes Sense

Why Your Recreation Center Should Include Racquetball

Racquetball in a recreation center
As a recreation center, you should always be looking into ways to improve your facilities through building or renovating. Most community centers come standard with basketball courts, fitness centers, and often swimming pools, but the smaller amenities set you apart from the competition.
One of those smaller amenities is racquetball. Racquetball is a great way to stay active and healthy and is a fun activity for people of all ages. There is a demand for racquetball, and at SFA, we believe that adding a racquetball court can make you more appealing to potential customers. Today, we’ll explain why.

Health Benefits

A recreation center is often a place for kids and adolescents to hang out and participate in athletic activities. If you have a gym or a pool, you know that most of your business comes from that age group. However, you also have a heavy demand for adults looking to stay physically active.
For those who don’t want to endure the physical rigors of basketball or would like a more energizing experience than running or weightlifting, racquetball is a great alternative. Racquetball is an activity loved by many adults looking for ways to stay physically fit and to satisfy their competitive craving.

Easy To Implement

One of the many reasons why racquetball is a popular offering among recreation centers is that it is so easy to install and maintain. A racquetball court is a fairly small space in comparison to others, being just 40 feet long by 20 feet wide. You don’t need any equipment like hoops or nets, either. All you need is a hardwood floor, walls, and a few lines to mark the court.
Given the size, it is easy to install multiple racquetball courts so that more people are able to play at any given time.  

Easy To Regulate

Racquetball courts don’t require referees or staff to keep them running and functioning. You can simply cycle players in and out according to your facility schedule. There are few activities that are easier to manage for a recreation center than racquetball which is one reason why so many recreation centers utilize it. If you are looking for another way to make some money or just another activity to offer so that your facility is more appealing to potential customers, racquetball is the easy answer.
