Morgan Davis


The sports facility where I play just put up some cool poster boards with statistics on the fitness benefits of racquetball. For many years now, I’ve played twice a week for two hours and get in at least five games. Taking into account I weigh 175, now let’s do the math…

And, like golf, you can play forever.  Check out local player, Burdette Hansen, at 80 beating someone half his age.

He’s totally sticking it to the youngster (probably in his 30s). Love it! The lesson for all Rball players is to stay healthy and strong enough to just get into the court at that age. The skill is treacherous and ageless, as Mr. Hansen clearly illustrates. What a great example for everyone. Now that’s inspiration!
