What kind of weight training do y’all engage in and how does affect your racquetball game?

I just started powerlifting fairly seriously this year. After playing some in the spring and taking the summer off I'm going to pick it back up again next month. I'm wondering how it will translate into my game.

Looking for a simple score keeping solution.

Looking for a simple score keeping solution.

Hello r/racquetball, my son and I are fairly new to the game but really enjoy it. The problem we keep having is that 3 or 4 times a game we disagree on the score. We have tried all manner of verbal ways to agree and keep track of the score to no avail.

Is there some type of mini flip or digital or number selector scoreboard we could hang near the serving area to keep score on? my local sports stores and Amazon do not have a solution that would not require something over sized that we would have to go outside of the court to use every time we score.

Many thanks for any help you can provide!

Icarus

Icarus

I just watched a shocking new Netflix exclusive documentary called "Icarus" which focuses on the whistleblowing of PED usage. This got me thinking about the egregious lack of drug testing in our sport. Sure, there is some testing via the international circuit (IRF), but my internet searching finds minimal evidence of such testing on the pro circuits. Am I misinformed? If not, hopefully the new IRT management can make some headway with this to keep it real, as I find it hard to believe that doping doesn't exist in a sport like ours which requires both endurance and power to succeed. BTW, I did find some reference to testing in the WRT, but nothing in IRT or LPRT.

How to return ceiling balls?

How to return ceiling balls?

I play an opponent who all he does is constantly hit ceiling balls, and he's very good at making them just die at the back wall. I find that I'm always running backwards for them which makes it hard for me to get a solid return, or I'm waiting for it bounce off the back wall and they either die at my feet or he hits it so hard that i'm now chasing the ball forward into the front court. whats the best strategy to deal with a player who plays like this?

I have an Ektelon O3 White. I’m trying to figure out how the Power Plugs are suppose to work?

I have an Ektelon O3 White. I’m trying to figure out how the Power Plugs are suppose to work?

It came with four power plugs at the top of the racquet. Do I need to move those to the side for more power or do I need to buy more? What have you found to be the best figuration for your game?
Thank you for any help and advice!!
