Handball is the parent sport of Racquetball, with similar rules. In handball, players use their hands to hit a ball the size of a golf ball. A standard handball court is a 20′ by 40′ room with a 20′ ceiling.

Gloves, Proper Eye Wear (goggles) and Proper Tennis Shoes are required while on the court for the safety of the players.

The Los Angeles Athletic Club has handball, racquetball, and squash courts for adult and junior use. Adult and Junior classes, special events, tournaments, clinics, and adult leagues are available to all members.
