Racquetball class at NVC begins Monday

There will be racquetball this summer at Napa Valley College. A new fee-based community class will be offered Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m. starting June 13.

Taught by Napa Valley College instructor and AmPro teaching pro Richard Bruns, the Intermediate/Advanced racquetball class is designed for players who have successfully completed at least one collegiate level course, or who have been playing at a club or other venue for a year or more.

Instruction will parallel that of the credit PHYE 118 class at Napa Valley College, although as a community class, grades are not applied. Topics covered will be USRA racquetball rules of play, understanding all aspects of safety while playing the game, appropriate rules for recreation-level racquetball, self-refereeing, stroke analyses and correction, and her related topics. Players interested in learning racquetball should consult the Fall NVC Credit schedule online.

Intermediate and advanced players new to the instructor will be evaluated on skills and understanding of the rules, playing strategy and safety procedures and deficits corrected.

Participants must provide their own equipment which includes a current style racquet equipped with a wrist safety tether; approved racquetball lensed eye-guards (Bruns suggests avoiding ones that actually look like goggles; glasses styling preferred); court shoes that do not make marks on the floor (no running shoes); and P.E. clothing. Balls will be provided.

Interested players should visit, click Academics, then Community Education, then go to pages 66 and 67 of the Community Education schedule for sign-up options. The class is not listed in the online schedule.

The section number is ZCED-2565-62314. The cost for the seven-week, 35-hour class is $143 ($4 per hour). Space is limited and it is first-come-first-in until the class is full.

For more information, contact Bruns at or 253-3119.
