The only place I know of is the US Embassy and you have to join their "club" to have access.

Re US Embassy: I assume you mean "racquet ball", not "squash" ?
Anyone know how to access the US Embassy "club" ?

To use the Embassy's racquetball court (or squash, they have both) you need to either be: 1) escorted in by embassy staff person (full member) or apply for AECA membership. Security check is up to a month (if you are non-U.S and non-Nato, forget about it) and dues are $900 per year to be paid up front for entire year.

When I lived at Rosinka (the gated community outside of Mitino, there was a raquetball/squash court (actually 2) there. If I correctly remember, you have to live there get in unless escorted by a resident. Now this was 3 years ago and things might have changed, but if you know someone who lives out there, it might be worth a shot. They can rent you a raquet, but you need your own balls. A virtually endless search in Moscow turned up none. I finally bought some in Spain on a trip there, so that might be a challenge even if you find a court.

What other facilities do they have there, Gothamcity??

Gym? Pool??

I could apply for "nato membership"!
