Wallyball combines recreation with intensity

Students with a love for racquetball and volleyball now have a way of combining their two passions.

The game is called Wallyball. It is a cross between volleyball and racquetball and is played in the Rec Center's racquetball courts. Players hit a ball back and forth, over a net and off the walls. If the ball hits the ground, the opposite team receives a point.

Sophomore Brent Folan said he loves the game because it is intense and unique.
