The club has a healthy racketball contingent, with a core of dedicated racketball players, and others who also play squash. A regular league runs all year round, and we also have an off-season competition. We field a representative team in the Bucks Racketball League. The club hast hosted rounds of a major national racketball competition, and one of our younger players won the B-Grade event in 2012.
Leagues run monthly and provide friendly but competitive games for members of all playing standards. To enter the leagues, simply contact the Club Manager, who will add you to a division at a suitable level.
