Racquetball is a sport played with two or four players.

The objective is to hit the ball with your racquet so that it bounces off the front wall and hits the floor before your opponent can return it. 

A player scores a point whenever their opponent is unable to return the ball; or fails to hit the front wall. The first player to reach 15 points wins the set. (if tied, a 3rd and final set plays to 11 points)
