Question about a player getting hit with the ball
When I learned to play about four years ago as a substitute for cardio, my friend and I would consistently get hit with the ball from each other. We'd decided that it was an interference. And the play went to the person who hit the ball last and not the interfering person. I.E. I serve, he returns, I return but the ball hits him and it's my point. But if he hit me on his return it would be his serve. We would do this even if the ball was obviously not going to the wall, and sometimes it would even be just a way to turn the game in our favor. A pretty dirty way to go about it as well, but it was fun.
What happens in an interference? I don't think there'd be a difference on whether or not the ball was GOING to hit the wall but I can't seem to find the answer and now I play with different people and nobody really even has a set rule. So we just play automatic reserve, though I like the old way a lot more
Edit: if I were to return the ball and it somehow hit me (like hit the wall and quickly hit me after) that would be interference on my pet so opponents serve.

Thoughts On Diving In Racquetball
Hi, folks, I'm just interested in hearing some of the community's views on diving in racquetball.
Personally, I'm not particularly graceful at diving and I'm relatively fast, so I almost never dive. Instead, I try to take an extra step or lunge to get to the ball. Obviously, at the pro level most of the top players dive with some regularity.
I'm curious though about your experiences with diving — do you think it's necessary to be adept at diving to be a top player? Can you excel without diving as part of your game? I know there are a few great players over the years who didn't dive much like "The King" Andy Roberts.
I also think diving can be quite harmful, especially if you don't do it with the proper form. I have definitely seen some people at my local club injure themselves with desperation dives.
Anyway, thanks in advance for your feedback! Play hard, play safe, everyone 🙂

Is back pain a common injury in racquetball? I find the quick movements after playing a few times a week really hurt my lower back. Stretching my legs helps. Is there an upper limit to how often you should play?

Non-Racquetball gear for racquetball?
Has anyone tried using gear meant for another sport for racquetball, and how'd you find it? For example, golf/baseball/football gloves, tennis string, a junior tennis racquet is technically legal if you can somehow attach a wristcord to it.
