Volleyball Court Dimensions

The overall measurements for a Volleyball court is 60 feet by 30 feet. Each side of the court is
therefore 30 feet by 30 feet in size.

Center Line

A center line is marked at the center of the court dividing it equally into 30 feet squares.

Attack Line

The attack line is marked 10 feet on each side of the center line of the court. Some rules show the
attack line at 9′ 10″ however that includes the width of the line itself (2″).

Service Line

A service line is marked 10 feet inside the right sideline on each back line. This is the area from
which the server may serve the volleyball.

The Net

The net is hung directly above the center line at 7 feet 4 inches for women and 8 feet for men.


Volleyball standards should be set at 36 feet apart, 3 feet on either side of the sidelines.

Ceiling Height

The minimum ceiling height should be 23 feet. Preferably the ceilings should be higher.

The NCAA added a women’s volleyball championship in 1981. USC won the first women’s
collegiate title.

The first men’s NCAA volleyball championship was played in 1970. UCLA won six of the first
seven men’s volleyball titles.

Tennis court

A tennis court is the venue where the sport of tennis is played. It is a firm
rectangular surface with a low net stretched across the center. The same
surface can be used to play both doubles and singles matches. A variety
of surfaces can be used to create a tennis court, each with its own
characteristics which affect the playing style of the game. Dimensions
The dimensions of a tennis court.
The dimensions of a tennis court are defined and regulated by the International
Tennis Federation (ITF) governing body and are written down in the annual 'Rules
of Tennis' document.[1] The court is 78 feet (23.77 metres) long. Its width is 27 feet
(8.23 metres) for singles matches and 36 feet (10.97 metres) for doubles matches.[2]
The service line is 21 feet (6.40 metres) from the net.[2] Additional clear space
around the court is needed in order for players to reach overrun balls for a total of
60 feet (18 metres) wide and 120 feet (37 metres) long. A net is stretched across
the full width of the court, parallel with the baselines, dividing it into two equal
ends. The net is 3 feet 6 inches (1.07 metres) high at the posts, and 3 feet (0.91
metres) high in the center.[3] The net posts are 3 feet (0.91 metres) outside the
doubles court on each side or, for a singles net, 3 feet (0.91 metres) outside the
singles court on each side.

Smaller courts

The ITF's Play and Stay campaign promotes playing on smaller courts with slower
red, orange and green balls for younger children. This gives children more time
and control so they can serve, rally, and score from the first lesson on courts that
are sized to fit their bodies. The ITF has mandated that official competition for
children under 10 years of age should be played on "Orange" courts 18 m (59 ft)
long by 6.4 m (21 ft) wide. Competition for children under 8 years is played on
"Red" courts that are 11 m (36 ft) long and 5.5 m (18 ft) wide. The net is always
0.8 m high in the center.

Basketball court
In basketball, the basketball court is the playing surface, consisting of a
rectangular floor with baskets at either end. In professional or organized
basketball, especially when played indoors, it is usually made out of a
wood, often maple, and highly polished and completed with a 10 foot
rim. Outdoor surfaces are generally made from standaDimensions

Basketball courts come in different sizes. In the National Basketball Association

(NBA), the court is 94 by 50 feet (28.7 by 15.2 m). Under International Basketball
Federation (FIBA) rules,[1] the court is slightly smaller, measuring exactly 28 by 15
meters (91.9 by 49.2 ft). In amateur basketball, court sizes vary widely. The
baskets are always 10 feet (3.05 m) above the floor (except possibly in youth
competition). Basketball courts have a three-point arc at both baskets. A basket
made from behind this arc is worth three points; a basket made from within this
line, or with a player's foot touching the line, is worth 2 points. The free-throw line,
where one stands while taking a foul shot, is located within the three-point arc at
15 feet from the basket. A foul shot is worth 1 point, but if a shot is made from the
foul line while in play it is still worth 2 points.[2]

Composite diagram of a basketball court with FIBA (top half only), NBA (both
halves), and NCAA (men’s & women’s – bottom half only) markings


The key, free throw lane or shaded lane refers to the usually painted area beneath
the basket; for the NBA it is 16 feet (4.9 m) wide, for the NCAA it is 12 feet
(3.7 m) wide; for both instances it extends 15 feet (4.6 m) from the backboard. At
the top of the rectangle is the free throw line, behind which players shoot
uncontested shots when they're fouled. A circle is drawn around the free-throw line
with a 6 feet (1.8 m) radius; this is used for jump ball instances, as is done at the
center circle. Two 6-inch hash lines, 3 ft from the free throw lane line and 5 ft 8 in
from the free throw line, show the lower defensive box linked to the restricted area.

For FIBA tournaments, since October 2010 the key has been a rectangle 4.9 m
wide and 5.8 m long. Previously it was a trapezoid 3.7 meters (12 ft) wide at the
free-throw line and 6 meters (19 feet and 6.25 inches) at the end line.

The key is primarily used to prevent players from staying beneath the basket of the
opponents' team for long periods (maximum three seconds).

The restricted area arc is a semi-circular arc drawn around the area directly
underneath the basket. With some exceptions, members of the defending team
cannot draw charging fouls in this area. The restricted arc in all North American
rule sets above high school level (NCAA men's and women's, NBA, and WNBA)
has a radius 4 feet (1.22 m) from below the center of the basket. The restricted area
arc rule first appeared at any level of basketball in the NBA in the 1997-98
season.[5] The NCAA restricted area arc was originally established for the 2011–12
men's and women's seasons at a 3-foot (0.91 m) radius from below the center of the
basket, and was extended to match the 4-foot radius for the 2015–16 season and
