Hey All,

Athanri here, 38 and a newbie to both Racquetball and this forum.

Loving the sport and feel like I'm improving.

It's hard to find a court or players in Ireland but I've just found a court and I am delighted with that.

I have not swung a racquet for over 25 years. I played C/B level singles and A Doubles while in school and for a few years after. I stopped playing and took up cycling.

I am getting ready to play again.

I would recommend that if you are actually looking for discussion about racquetball, you take a look at Reddit.

My partner is a right hander and he stands close to the right wall which is  my back hand as I am left handed. He will hit the ball either down the right wall or across his body to the left back corner. I stand in the middle of the court. If I cheat over to my right to see the ball he will hit it to that left back corner and I haven't figured out a way to get to it yet. If I cheat over to the left he will serve right down the right side wall. Either I am too old and slow or cannot figure out how to handle his serve. Any suggestions will be helpful.

Is his racquet or his body crossing the 2nd line when he serves to that same side?

This is an illegal drive serve.

https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Racquetball/...egulations

(h) Illegal Drive Serve. A drive serve in which the player fails to observe the 17-foot drive service zone as outlined in Rule 3.6.

It can also be a screen serve.

(i) Screen Serve. A served ball that first hits the front wall and on the rebound passes so closely to the server, or server's partner in doubles, that it prevents the receiver from having a clear view of the ball. (The receiver is obligated to take up good court position, near center court, to obtain that view.) In one serve play, if a serve is called a screen, the server will be allowed one more opportunity to hit a legal serve. Two consecutive screen serves results in an out.

Review that rule with him if it continues to be an issue.

My name is Cliff. I'm 54. I've been playing off and on since my mid 20's, but the last 8 years or so I've been playing once or twice a week. I consider my level intermediate. I'm wanting to improve my game since I'm playing with people a bit better than me. The guys I'm playing with are somewhat bigger physically and are able to hit the ball faster. This is of course key when serving. My goal currently is to have a faster serve. I've watched numerous youtube videos but feel at this point I may need a different racquet. I'm thinking a head heavy racquet would help with serving speed. I play tennis, and yes I know, much different than RB, but I do much better with a head heavy tennis racquet. So maybe that might translate to RB. Perhaps string tension should be lower. Any constructive comments would be appreciated.
