Recreation: Racquetball


PLEASE NOTE: due to recent AHS restrictions on fitness and sport in Alberta, the racquetball courts are currently closed. The TGCA will revisit these restrictions as the Province delivers more information. 

Racquetball is a great way to get your heart rate up, stay fit, and get out and meet new people!

The TGCA is excited to get our courts open again, and we can’t wait to see our racquetball regulars!

Of course, there are a few changes now-like a max of two courts in play at any time, sanitizing of courts between bookings, minimal change room times, and disinfecting of all rental equipment- but we wholehearted want to welcome back our racquetball players and encourage any new players to visit our facility.

Our payment structure has changed a bit. Players will now book one hour for both players, and prime and non-prime times will remain. Members will receive a 10% discount.

The TGCA has two racquetball courts currently available to book, which are available to members only. Become a member and save 10%!

There are 2 change rooms adjacent to the court viewing area that players may use to change and shower. Only 2 players will be permitted in 1 change room at one time.

The change rooms will be made available to players 10 minutes before and after their court bookings, and we kindly ask that players are as efficient as possible to mitigate risk of COVID-19 exposure from other players in these small areas. Please bring a lock and take it with you when your booking is concluded.

The TGCA asks that players leave their lockers open when they leave, so that the caretaking staff know which lockers to sanitize.

If AT ALL POSSIBLE, players are to arrive at the court in their racquetball attire to reduce the amount of time spent in the change rooms. ONLY white soled, non-marking shoes are allowed on the courts. Safety lenses/glasses are MANDATORY while on the courts. Shoes must be worn at all times.

Please do not interrupt games that are in progress.

Court play times are 45 minutes; booked in 1-hour time blocks.

Please note: if you would like to hold a time block and pay in person, please call 403-274-5574 and ask for a booking, or email Todd, to reserve a spot. 

Please note: We book racquetball with a built in 30 minute buffer for sanitizing purposes, so your booking will be 1.5 hours but you’ll have an hour for play.
