Paddleball is very similar to racquetball. One of the differences is that the paddle is solid instead of stringed. Paddleball offers a good mix of athletic conditioning and strategy skills. It is relatively easy to learn the rules and objectives of the game. However, to become a skilled player, it is necessary to practice often and to learn the various strategies involved in the game. Always warm-up and stretch before playing paddleball.
