COURT UPDATE - COVID

As you all know, this Pandemic is as serious as it gets. We have decided to open the courts to our members but we need to have full participation in our safety guidelines to make sure that everyone stays safe. Non adherance to these protocols would mean that we need to shut the courts back down and no one wants that. Please see below list:
  • Masks and closed goggles or face shields are required at all times.
  • Temperatures will be checked at entry. Please stay home if you feel any symptoms (visit our website/covid faq page for further guidance).
  • Both players must be listed on the court reservation (CDC recommendation for possible contact tracing). Sorry no doubles at this time.
  • Please wash your hands before entering court.
  • Please maintain 6′ social distancing as much as possible .
  • Please sanitize door and any touched surfaces before and after court use.
  • Masks must be worn in the lobby at all times (even before and after each drink of beer:)

Racquetball

Lloyd Athletic Club offers seven racquetball courts with challenge nights and in-house league play. We’re also the host site for the Oregon State Racquetball Championships held each year in March. An active group of players of all levels keep the program strong and growing.

Racquet sports are a very social part of the club with the lobby area in front of both back wall glass courts. There’s plenty of seating and access to the snack bar where you can grab a protein drink, beer or wine depending on your tastes.

  • Reservations can be made through www.clublocker.com
  • Walk-in play welcome based on availability
  • Court play is for one hour and starts either on the hour or the ½ hour
  • Racquet stringing is available through the front desk
  • Protective eyewear is highly recommended and is mandatory for junior players
Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Lessons

One Hour: $69, discounted packages available. 
The session includes all the fundamentals, including rules, forehand & backhand swings, drilling, court position, and serves & return of serves as well. It is important for players of all levels to learn and analyze the fundamentals of the game at some point in their racquetball career, so many players schedule a two hour session, especially for the first lesson. This will give you time to play a practice game, giving you a chance to use what you’ve just learned!

Fundamentals Bootcamp: Swing Mechanics & Video Analysis

Two Sessions, Two Hours Each: $190
A mechanics and video analysis session is essential for any serious racquetball player, from beginner to Open level. Being able to watch yourself play, see your swing slowed down (both forehand and backhand), and analyze your shot selection gives you instant access to correcting your game quicker and easier than months or even years of practice. Learning proper swing mechanics–from grip to follow through–and seeing your game for yourself is essential to finding and playing at your best level.

Junior Lessons

One Hour: $35 (two hours, or two juniors at once: $60)
Junior players, ages 6-18 years, are taught the basics of racquetball, strategy, safety, and sportsmanship. All levels are welcome, from the beginner to the advanced player. This is a remarkable program from which a junior player can gain a substantial amount of skill development for any sport, as well as a healthy love for the game of racquetball!

Group Lessons, One Hour

Two People: $35/each   Three to Four People: $25/each  Five to Eight People: $15/each

Racquetball Challenge Court

Courts #2 & #3 are reserved for challenge court every Monday & Wednesday from 4pm – Close.

Play is open to all players and is based on the court you sign up on. Expect a social group that turns a lot of nights into doubles play to maximize everyone’s court times.

L.A.C. Racquetball Leagues

Racquetball leagues are run ongoing here at the club with no fees to participants. Throughout the year there are four leagues: two in the Winter and two in Summer/Spring.

Leagues are arranged by skill level from Beginner to Open/A. Players can join or drop out each time a new league season begins, and all leagues are set up as Flex Leagues. This means matches are usually played once a week, and each player coordinates with their opponent for that coming week to schedule a time play that works for both of them.
