The North American Racquets Association

The game of racquets is considered to be the fastest racquet sport in existence. With its origins dating back over 200 years, it is similar to its offspring the game of squash. Racquets is played in a 60’ by 30’ enclosed court with walls extending 30’ high. The ball routinely travels well over a hundred miles per hour, propelled by a long wooden racquet. It is played in both singles and doubles formats in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The North American Racquets Association is the sport’s governing body in the United States and Canada.

The History of Racquets

In its earliest form during the 18th Century, rackets was played in the open on the walls of the yards of the two main debtor’s prisons.
