Keeping this in view, does ektelon still make racquetball racquets?
In 1988, Prince Sports purchased Ektelon and the brand remained

Keeping this in consideration, is there a difference between a tennis racket and a racquetball racket?
Tennis racquets have a rounded top edge and a more rounded shape in comparison to racquetball racquets. Meanwhile, racquetball racquets have a flat upper edge and a pinched bottom that comes together to create a distinct teardrop shape.
Why is racquetball different from other racket sports?
Whilst both used to feature a circular head similar to those used in badminton, they both now have more teardrop shaped heads. Those in racquetball, however, are wider and this is to cope with the larger ball that is used compared to squash.
Simply speaking, no, tennis must be strictly played with tennis racquets and you must avoid using other sport racquets like squash or racquetball for it. When you play a racquet sport, you need to play with the right equipment. Tennis needs to be played with a tennis racquet.
In both games, it can be played by two (singles) or four (doubles.) Racquetball can be played with three (cut throat) an option not really available (but possible) in pickleball.
