Outdoor Racquetball FB Groups

Outdoor Racquetball Community coordination Facebook Groups

Finding people to play Outdoor Racquetball isn’t always like joining a health club and signing up to play in a league; often times they’re just courts built in a park, or at a school, without much in the way of official participation organization.  So many communities around the country have taken to self-organizing through Social Media, specifically by creating Facebook Groups, where people coordinate play. 

This is a review of all known Outdoor Racquetball-related Facebook groups, pages, and people to follow.  If you’re someone who lives in one of these areas definitely join the group/follow the person so you’re “in on” play coordination, or have a place to ask questions of people who are more familiar with courts in your area.
