Hi Inga,
Most of the racquetball/health clubs I've found for you online do not
say whether they have instructors or not. They are generally vague but
all include contact numbers. Since I'm overseas, it would be
impossible for me to call these clubs and ask what facilities for
racquetball they have. I could give you the names of these clubs and
contact numbers as an answer if you decide that is appropriate. Let me
know your decision.
Best regards,

Finding a good instructor and one that matches your personality is
important to learning and liking this sport. I've included a lot of
resources. You may find that the first one you contact is a perfect
fit. I hope so, but if not, don't feel bad "firing" the instructor
after a lesson or two.

The California State Racquetball Association recognizes a few clubs in
your area.

In Canoga Park
Spectrum Racquet Club

In Torrance
Rolling Hills Athletic Club

Mid Valley Athletic Club

Santa Clarita
Santa Clarita Athletic Club

There are also a couple in San Bernardino, but that's more of a trip
for you.

is a great site for finding clubs in your area. They've got a
clickable map that loads pages of LA area clubs. It's a good resource
if you're interested in the game. Gear evaluations, events and more.

There's also the LA Athletic Club 
mentioned in the comments. It's in downtown LA and since it's not
listed in the State Association, I'm not sure that the instructor
would be a pro... normally the pros belong to associations in order to
take part in tournaments and get ranked. That's why I listed the clubs
recommended by your state association first.

Meet and Play 
lists additional clubs - click on the more info link to find out if
they have a pro associated with the club. For instance, if you click
on the Trojans Racquetball Club link - you find that it's the club
associated with USC and doesn't list any pro instructors.

LESSONS with Fran Davis
She is the coach of many champions and does private lessons. She's in
the Bay area, but does "on the road" lessons. There's a phone number
to contact her if you absolutely want the top coach.

A sports store, has a service called "Dial-A-Lesson" which will locate
a pro in your area. You can call (209) 982-0111 or email them for the
provides a service to match you with other players in your area. This
is not a place for lessons, but if you want someone at the same skill
level to practice with, it may be a good resource. You'll need to sign
up and tell them a little about your skill level in order to use the
service.  It makes sense - they can't match skill levels if they don't
get the info from you.

I think the pros at the clubs near you should fill your needs. All of
the contact information and addresses are listed on the CSRA site. If
not the next couple of sites should do the trick.
