Racquetball action to begin on NE soon

By John Garces/reporter

One of the longest-running games on NE Campus is returning soon.

The campus will be having a racquetball tournament on Friday, Oct. 19.

In addition to being one of the longest-running campus activities, it’s also one of the most strenuous.

“ Racquetball is a very vigorous sport,” Kevin Harper, NE HPE instructor said.

“ It’s pretty intense, especially if you keep a rally going.”

A major reason for this is the sudden flurry of activity during a game.

“ It’s short bursts of intense activity followed by a few seconds of rest,” he said.

The sport has deep roots at TCC, as well.

“ The racquetball courts have been here since 1968 when the campus opened,” Harper said. “There used to be a racquetball intramural league.”

Additionally, NE Campus offers two racquetball classes for students.

For more information, visit the NE HPE office (NHPE 2111A) or call 817-515-6634.
