Why do you have the old rules from 2007 on this site?

Your link to USRA Website for the rules: http://www.usra.org/Rulebook.aspx

Is the racket considered part of the players body? Here is an example: If during a returned shot the ball strikes the opponents racket prior to hitting the front wall is that the same as if the ball hit the player’ leg? Do you replay the point or does the player whose racket was hit lose the point?

I have tried to find something in the rule book about this and I can not find the answer. Any help here would be appreciated!

Gene:

The racquet is considered part of the person’s body, and so the standard rules for hinders/penalty hinders would apply. In other words, if it hit their body and would be considered a hinder, then hitting their racquet is exactly the same.

Racquetball indeed is one of the best games. To master racquetball we must follow each one of its rules. A game without rules is not a game.
I hope racquetball lovers will find this site useful.
