Are there different balls involved?

Racquetball is a racquet sport played with a hollow rubber ball in an indoor or outdoor court. Joe Sobek invented the sport in 1948, incorporating rules from squash and handball. Unlike most racquet sports, such as tennis or badminton, the court's walls, floor, and ceiling are legal playing surfaces, rather than out-of-bounds.
Squash:The relatively small court and low-bouncing ball makes scoring points harder than in its American cousin, racquetball, as the ball may be played to all four corners of the court. Since every ball must strike the front wall above the tin (unlike racquetball), the ball cannot be easily 'killed'. As a result, rallies tend to be longer than in racquetball.

Racquetball and squash are both very famous racket and court games that are played all around the world. Much time people are unable to differentiate between the two because of many similarities between the names of equipment’s used in both the games. However, both of these are pretty different from each other in the matter - See more at source

It could be played on the same court but the lines are different for playing real games. They rackets in both sports are different and so are the balls. Squash is a lot harder so younger people because you have to move really fast or the ball with stop. Racketball is alot easier, it is played with a bigger ball therefore easier to hit and it bounces higher/longer/faster! Good Luck :)
