Racquetball is an indoor sport that is gaining popularity in the states. It’s a fast-paced sport or recreational activity that anyone can enjoy, beginner or not.
It’s such an easy game to play. As long as you have the right equipment, you can start playing it.
But of course, if you want to play your best, your equipment should be more than good. As such, it’s important to get your racquetball equipment from reputable stores.
Now, if you already have squash accessories on hand, you can use those when playing racquetball. Squash and racquetball share a lot of their playstyles but are two different sports. I could discuss their differences, but that’s for another article.
Anyway, here are the best online racquetball stores you should shop in.
1. Racquetball Warehouse
If you want the best racquetball gear and accessories, Racquetball Warehouse has got you covered.
This online store has the biggest racquetball library of items on this list. They don’t offer just one brand for their items. If you have a preferred racquetball brand, you can bet you’ll see it here.
This is what makes this online store one of the best websites you can shop in.
As for their shipping, they offer free standard 2-day shipping for orders over $50. If you want overnight shipping, that will come at $9.95 on orders over $75.
They also offer free returns in case you’re not happy with your item.
2. Racquet World
Racquet World boasts the largest selection of racquetball equipment online. They have over 35 exclusive racquets that you won’t find elsewhere.
They offer competitive pricing and are open to price negotiation if you can find a much lower deal elsewhere. I’ve always been a fan of price-matching. It’s a great way to get the best deal available.
Racquet World offers free day shipping for items over $99. It’s not the best deal when it comes to shipping, but it’s easy to reach $99 for some racquetball gear.
3. Dick’s Sporting Goods
I almost did not want to include Dick’s Sporting Goods on this list. But Dick’s Sporting Goods is the largest sporting goods retailer in the US. It’s impossible to exclude it from the list.
What’s great about Dick’s Sporting Goods is you will find most sporting items here. The items they offer serve a more general appeal but get the job done.
For instance, you likely won’t see a rare racquetball item here. That’s all right since Dick’s is not a specialty racquetball store.
For the most part, Dick’s Sporting Goods would serve you well when shopping for your racquetball gear.
Of course, Amazon will be on this list. Amazon has grown so large that you likely have bypassed all the stores on this list in favor of this one giant marketplace.
I mean, Amazon offers all the things you may need, plus more. It’s fair to assume that they have a good racquetball selection, and they do.
One common complaint on Amazon is the quality, though. If you’re an experienced Amazon shopper, you can apply the tricks you’ve learned when shopping for some racquetball gear. If the deal is too good to be true, then it probably is.
5. Bell Racquet Sport
Bell Racquet Sport’s greatest strength is its racquetball accessories. They have a good selection of accessories ranging from footwear to eyewear.
It helps that they also offer tennis gear. For the most part, tennis and racquetball share the same accessories. If you have certain accessories in mind, shopping in this store would be a great decision.
They’ve also opened their physical stores. If you’re the type of person who checks the actual items before buying, then pay them a visit.
Bell Racquet Sport offers free shipping for items over $99.
6. Tennis Warehouse
You may not expect it because of the name, but Tennis Warehouse has some of the best deals on racquetball gears on this list.
They offer plenty of sales and discounts. Go to their page and you’d usually see ‘buy 1 get 1’ deals. If you are a fan of getting more out of your money, then Tennis Warehouse is the best place to go.
And to put the cherry on top, Tennis Warehouse is offering free shipping for items over $50. You won’t see that elsewhere.
7. Big 5 Sporting Goods
Big 5 Sporting Goods is not a racquetball-only store, but it does offer a respectable amount of racquetball gear.
It carries all the most popular brands, which make shopping a lot easier. All items from all brands are in one place.
One issue is their items are a bit limited when it comes to options. You can still complete your racquetball gear by shopping on their website.
Scheels is one of the largest sporting goods stores in America with over 100+ years of retail experience.
It started as a hardware and general merchandise store in 1902 and expanded to a smaller version of what it is today in 1954.
What I love about their website is you can easily track your orders using the tracking ID. They also offer free returns in case you don’t like the item you receive.
You have two options when you order: you either pick it up at any of their stores or have it shipped. Free shipping is for items over $50 or more.
9. E-Force Racquetball
E-Force is more of a brand than a store. This means that E-Force is the only brand they offer. Think of it like adidas or Nike, but for racquetball.
E-Force has managed to make a name for itself in the racquetball industry, thanks to its superior quality and craftsmanship.
Their items are available in high to mid-performance variants, and their prices reflect that. If you’re just playing casually, getting a mid-performance variant will do you just fine.
Their shipping is free for items over $89 in continental US only. If you want to ship the items abroad, you are subject to international fees.
