What is the difference between a 160 and 170 gram racquetball racquet?

10 grams... :D I just had to...

the nominal weight difference will only be critical to better players... a general rule is that younger players 30 or below typically swing a lighter 150-170gm stick while older players >30 usually fare better with a slightly weighty racquet. This is due to swing speed decreasing with age, and depending on the person. I would recommend googling some racquetball merchants and taking advantage of demo programs if you are at a level that you think weight Can make a difference (I actually found out that a heavier racquet is not needed for me this way, I still hit harder with the light ones). Good luck!!!

What kind of flooring is in a racquetball court?

Generally most racquetball courts are done with an unfinished maple hardwood. Not an engineered wood, but a real hardwood 3/4" thick, 3" wide panels. The wood is installed as tight as possible, however, in some areas it may be necessary to use a specific filler to fill any voids or separations. The floor is then sanded to perfection using both an edge sander and a drum sander, then finished with a polyurethane finish. Maple is hard enough to not have to condition and seal prior to finishing.
