BRATTLEBORO — The 2018 Brattleboro RacquetSports racquetball league will soon be underway. Registration for the Brattleboro Racquetball League closes Jan. 7 and the first week of play will begin on Jan. 14, with the playoffs scheduled for March 10.

This session of the Racquetball League, sponsored by Brattleboro RacquetSports Inc (BRI), is comprised of three different skill levels. Men, women, juniors and seniors will compete against one another — the only criterion for skill level placement is playing ability.
