Is the handball format the exact same as racquetball? Looks identical except no walls and no rackets.

Default racquetball scion of handball

The same rules. Racquetball is the direct descendant of handball. I play both but prefer handball. Here in NY we play one wall both handball and racquetball. It takes more skill to hit the ball with the hand, thus speed, skill, stamina, strategy and hand eye coordination are at a premium in handball. A good handball player is a well rounded athlete. Racquetball is all power and control. Sometimes it seems those balls are flying at 150+ MPH in racquetball it is a really fast game. Both are fun sports and great expressions of athleticism.

I like Tennis because you can find single and double leagues almost everywhere, and since is a single/double sport, you can still have good competition without the big deal of organization that is needed in team sports. I guess you can say the same thing with pickup basketball, but every time I play b-ball with a friend on a neighborhood court, a bunch of people start showing and want to play with you, and I hate it! In tennis people show up but they wait their turn!

cycling and running. Can do them individually or, as I usually do, with friends.
We do 100 mile century rides like the Hotter N Hell Hundred Hotter'N Hell 100
Or group rides with the local cycling club Wheeling Wheelmen Home

How do you dribble the ball and eat at the same time?

Tennis for me. Just need one more person to play and you can play tennis into pretty old age, so I hope to be playing for many decades to come.
