New Rules

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 11:42 am

We all know the rules for racquetball, right? A few rule changes went into effect this year (effective September 1, 2013) that you should know about:

1. In USAR-sanctioned events throughout the nation, all divisions (including the “Open” divisions) will play the two-serve game -- except for the U.S. National Team Qualifying divisions at the U.S. National Doubles and the U.S. National Singles Championships. See Rules 3.1 and 5.

2. Players must wear shoes and cannot play in socks only or in bare feet. See Rule 2.5(b).

3. Electronic audio devices cannot be worn during play unless they are needed to amplify one’s hearing ability. See Rule 2.5(c).

4. Unintentional “carries” during the rally are allowed and are no longer called. See Rule 3.13(b).
