Raquetball Court Bliss

I still consider myself a newbie in the juggling world... just less than 22 months of juggling experience. This may not come to be a surprise to anyone but I have discovered the wonderful thing called racquetball courts.

I’ve seen people juggling in racquetball courts on videos but never considered trying them out. Since I’ve moved back indoors for my training I’ve been forced to deal with “non-jugglers” getting in my way. I use the Oregon State University recreational center (ultra-mega-huge) and the best place to practice I had found was on the badminton courts.

I never really felt bad about taking up an entire court for myself even though I wasn’t playing badminton. However, one grows tired of telling people that you were there first, you have a right to juggle on the badminton courts, and they can sit, wait, and watch until I’m done.

Hence, the motivation to try the racquetball courts enters my life.

Now I’m asking myself, “Where have you been all my life?” I love the racquetball courts. There are 8 of them and they are never completely full… never even ¾ full.

Here are the wonderful benefits of practicing in a racquetball court:

  • Privacy, no one to interrupt you
  • Excellent lighting, not too bright but well lit
  • White/Off-white walls, great visibility of darker props
  • High Ceilings
  • Smooth Floor Surface, great for spin moves
