Wikipedia History of Racketball - United Kingdom

In 1976, Ian D.W. Wright created the sport of racketball based on U.S. racquetball. (British racketball is played in a 32-ft. long by 21-ft. wide squash court (eight feet shorter and one foot wider than the U.S. racquetball court), using a smaller, less dynamic ball than the American racquetball. In this sport, the ceiling is out of playing bounds. The racketball is served after a bounce on the floor then struck into play with the racket. Scoring is like squash, but with point-a-rally scoring of up to 15 points.) The British Racquetball Association was formed on 13 February 1984, and confirmed by the English Sports Council as the sport's governing body on 30 October 1984. The first National Racketball Championship was held in London on 1 December 1984. The sport is now played in countries where squash is played, Australia, Bermuda, France, Germany, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sweden. Currently, racketball also is played in parts of North America, and on 1 September 1988, the British Racketball Association merged with the English Squash Rackets Association.
