Racquetball comes to NE

   Racquetball, a fast-paced game, requires endurance, skill and body control, and the HPE department on NE Campus will hold a tournament for students who think they possess all those attributes.
   A man named Joe Sobek, who vigorously promoted his game of “paddle racquets” at YMCAs across the country, developed the sport on a handball court in the early 1950s.
   The use of racquets for game play did not come around until the ’60s. Before then, people used handball gloves.
   The deadline for entries is Friday, Feb. 24, at 12:45 p.m., with competition starting at 1 p.m. on the racquetball courts.
   Many aficionados enjoy the sport for its fast-pace and intense workout; it doesn’t take much longer than 30 minutes to get some vigorous exercise.
   For more information, contact the HPE department at 817-515-6634.
