Racketball was recently rebranded Squash 57 by England Squash
This renaming was because racketball more closely resembles squash, than the racquetball played in USA
In American racqetball the court is long, thin, there is no tin & the ceiling is a legal playing surface
Squash 57 is played on a conventional squash court with a squash 57 ball - either black or blue (bouncier)
