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.
L.A.C. offers personal racquetball lessons by our club pro, Cody Matteucci. (click to learn more about Cody…)

Private Lesson Information & Rates
Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Lessons
One Hour: $45, Two Hours: $80
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.
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!
