Answer 1You can but you shouldn't. A tennis racquet is much larger and designed for a larger ball than a Racquetball racquet. Officially speaking, it is against the rules to play with anything other than a racquetball racquet. Answer 2

Most games have dimensions and rule boundaries placed on official equipment allowable. I believe there are constraints on the racquets that should be used in racquetball, including the shape of the end of the face. There are also practical disadvantages for using tennis racquets in racquetball - they are far too heavy and cumbersome. The ball needs to be struck with a kind of throwing action and one that is very fast.

This action is not as efficient or as possible with tennis equipment as it is using the proper impliments.

What is the difference between a racket and a racquet?

A tennis or other sports racquet sold at retail is technically "prestrung" (ready to use). Pre-strung means the racquet is shipped to the store already strung and that is the way you purchase it. In specialty sports stores and pro shops, you purchase the racquet, choose the strings, and have the racquet strung at the tension you request.
