    I taught racquetball when I was a grad assistant at UNLV - long ago! One of my students hit me in the head with their racquet and gave me a concussion. I hope you are okay Justin! It looks like it was the ball that got you.




    I have to ask... why are you taping your racquetball game?

    lucky for you it was the back of the head, and not the front of the head. Protective eyewear is never a bad thing. On a side note, aside from some unmentionable places, I swear the worst place to get hit with a racquetball is the love handle!!

    This was the first time I brought the camera to racquetball. I wasn't expecting any fantastic footage, more like a testing and trial with the suction cup mount that I've got. Racquetball footage is VERY boring to watch unless there are a few spoofs here and there.

    I own some safety glasses, I need to wear them more. I just don't look at the ball when somebody hits it That's why I've been nailed in the back, both butt cheeks, legs, and this was the second headshot I've had in a month.

    You are very wise. Rule number 1 of racquetball; Always keep your eyes on the front wall!!

    I was there and I have now watched the video 12 times and still bust out laughing every time.

    Dude wear your goggles, I play quite often and none of us look at the ball but you will loose eye sight if you take a ball off the eye hole.



    Two wheels are better than four, keep the rubber side down.

    Second that, you will lose your eyesight if you take it in the eye. Racquet ball glasses are cheap.
    It's your fault, you shouldn't have been there!

    You'll shoot yer eye out!

    Naw just raise your racket over your face and look through it when looking backwards. Keeping your eye on the ball at ALL times, is very important. Always facing front you will not see where the shot is going and those precious seconds trying to re-track it are lost. This will shield your whole face and prevent getting hit anywhere. Although the back of the thigh still hurts like the dickens

    Your safety is not my responsibility.
