Too bad it’s squash…

I play in a college club (6 regulars, 2 more than play on occasion) and I'm looking for drill ideas. I am probably a low-A player, we have two more that are about my level, one low-B player, and two C players. We play twice a week for 2h each time, and whoever wants to play shows up whenever they want.
I think we would like to drill maybe 30m, once a week at most. We're not all that serious, so much more than that would be overkill. Here are the few drills we do currently, so hopefully you all can add to them!
-Ceiling drill, two people hit ceilings back and forth until someone messes up, we compete to see which pair can get the most. -Dropping balls down a line and taking turns hitting cross-court shots into a racquet in the opposite corner.
And honestly, that's about it. We mainly just play matches against each other. Sometimes when I play with my girlfriend individually (one of the C's) we'll work on something specific that she's bad at, like receiving backhand serves, or Z serves, or drive serves, or whatever, but that's about it.

Need racquet suggestions.
I joined a gym with a guy from work and we're going to play racquetball once a week. I'd like to get a real nice racquet and could use some suggestions.
I played tennis a lot back in high school and the big brand was "Babalot" Are there any brands like this in racquetball that I should look for?
I played a decent amount of racquetball in college but just used whatever racquet I could get.

Hinder or not?
I was playing cutthroat today and had a situation I'm not sure would be a legal hinder or not.
The ball went to the back wall and I was mid court, facing the side wall, turned a bit towards the back wall, getting ready to play it. One of the other players is moving forward between me and the side wall I'm facing, then crosses in front of me. I'm focused on the ball but see him in my peripheral vision. I thought he'd positioned himself directly between me and the front wall so I held up on the shot, turned to call the hinder, see he's moved to the side but by then it was too late to take the shot. As he was moving I think he paused in front of me, then moved to the side.
This was a friendly game and we just played it over. We have a play it safe policy on hinders. Thinking about it afterwards though I don't think it was a hinder since he'd moved. On the other hand if he was blocking as I'm setting up, is it a hinder even though he moves at the last second?
