Where can I find a racquetball court in Europe?

I used to be quite good when I lived in America and played recently on my last visit there. I really want to have a possibility to play again but I live in Denmark and the game is unheard of here. I've written some squash clubs to ask and they all tell me that it's hopeless in Europe and to switch to squash instead. I know the UK has developed a game called 'racketball', using a squash court but I'm wondering if there are any real racquetball courts around (maybe in a place with lots of American expats?). I'm willing to travel within Europe. Thanks!

Restringing Mass Frames Cheap Worth It?

Restringing Mass Frames Cheap Worth It?

Hi everyone! A friend of mine has 15 racquets that need restrung. He said he’s gonna try to sell some the frames and keep some also. He said about 10 need regripped also. We were talking and he said he’d let me restring the 15 racquets at $10 a piece if I was cool with it. All of it is going to be restrung with Synthetic gut. Also said he’d give $5 a piece for grips. (I have tons I don’t need anymore.) $50 Profit for 10 grips installed. $150 Profit for string. (I got string provided by him.) So $200 for that, a lot of work but some $! Is it worth it you think guys? I just want your opinion. Not a lot per frame but it is some $$$. He’s not in big a rush which helps. I just want some opinions and feedback. I have a Gamma 6004 6 Point with a Wise Tension Head also. Would you do it? Thanks!

Survey: What’s the typical personality profile of a racquetball player? Looking for participants!

Survey: What’s the typical personality profile of a racquetball player? Looking for participants!

Hi r/racquetball,

We are scientists from the Ruhr-University in Bochum in Germany and currently researching how athletes from different sports and at different proficiency levels differ in their personalities.

We created a survey in which you are asked to pick your main sport and to then characterize the typical and the ideal athlete of this sport. When choosing your sport from our list of sports "Squash & Racquetball" is probably the best fit for you.

The survey takes about 20 minutes and as compensation, we will later inform you about the typical personality profile of your sport!

Link to survey: https://bochumpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aUXD2hchsEOZ2N7?S=12

Feel free to share the link with other people of your/other sports!

If you have questions, leave them in the comments and we will try to answer them.

Thank you so much in advance!

Question about screens:

Question about screens:

What is the rule for calling screens during rallies? Here’s the situation. I hit a pinch and left it too high. My opponent runs to the front left side of the court just in front of the service line to take his shot. I move to the middle of the court back near the receiving line. He’s a left handed player. He hits a tight down-the-line on the left side. Since his body was in the way, I couldn’t see the hit, I couldn’t see it hit the wall, and I couldn’t see the first bounce. The second bounce was one foot behind him, but as I couldn’t see where it was hit or where it bounced I wasn’t ready for it. This happened 2 or three times during our many games. I didn’t call any screens because I figured it was my fault for putting myself in that position. I knew that a down-the-line was a possibility but I didn’t want to give up 3/4 of the court. I told him after the game that I was frustrated with my self for putting myself somewhere where I can’t see his shot or the bounce. He told me to call a screen next time. I realized that I don’t really know the rules about screens during rallies. I watch a lot of professional games and I can’t remember any screens being called after a serve.
