Racquetball any more, or am i the only one still stuck in the 80's?

Making a trip to the Bay Area on Easter weekend and I'm looking for a game.

I play twice a week in the winter, then switch to tennis in the summer. I don't really think its an 80s game so much, but never really thought about it(or cared).

I used to play a bit. Problem is I end up getting kind of bored with it. I tried squash for a while, which I thought was more fun, but their was a limited number of people to play with. Great workout though.

I actually went and watched the US Championships that were held a month or so ago here in Tempe, AZ (at ASU).

My buddy is good friends, from college, with Tim Sweeney and Doug Ganim, who won the 40+ national championships. I guess at one time Sweeney was ranked the best in the world, but got bored with it and primarily plays pickle or something... He says he couldn't find any real competition in Chicago. We had dinner with these guys, and I thought it was pretty funny, but they had actually had groupies...

Championship Bracket

It was pretty crazy to watch, these guys are so good it was crazy. I think Sweeney broke three racquets during one game... I probably won't go back though.

Maybe it was squash that he switched to, I don't remember. He said it was more like a chess game than RB was.

With my insanity/p90 hybrid I usually cut out the stretching/yoga days and go play a hour of racquetball and then a hour of swimming....

Usually play like 2v2 or cut-throat.... I really like the game except for the occasional shots I take from a buddy - played tennis his whole life so he can just crush the thing

I didn't think anyone from WW played. I play 3-4 a week and have since the mid-80's.. I did take a hiatus from 2001 to 2008 only playing occasionally. I picked up 40 lbs in that time frame that I can't seem to shake since I hit my 40's.
Jrod, are there any places to play in the Bay Area? I'm willing to drive a bit and will be staying in the Brentwood area. I used to play at The Supreme Court in Walnut Creek when I lived there, but I'm not even certain that place is open any longer.
