Dimensions of TENNIS COURTS

The dimensions of a standard tennis court, where official match is played, including the out areas, are 18,27 m x 36,57 m

The layouts with dimensions of two standard adjacent courts are presented below:

We would like to note that out areas of private tennis courts may be smaller. Contact us and we will offer the most suitable variant for you.

Remark: all the marking dimensions of the courts have to be performed from the external edge of the line, except for the central serviceline and central mark; the measurements have to be done from their centre. The net’s dimensions have to be calculated using the lead hanging from the top of the net or the rope stretched between the centres in the holes of the net’s poles.

Remarks: when the results are assessed, it is necessary to take the grass movement during the court’s marking.

The permitted net-related error of measurements is increased by 10 mm.

N is measured from the centre of the net’s poles.

If the position X cannot be determined precisely, for example, because of fixation of the central belt, the mid-point of the centre serviceline should be used as a reference point.

Applicable for international competitions. The distance may be smaller in private court or club.

Evenness/ Inclines of the TENNIS COURTS

No unevenness may be present on the court’s surface. It may cause saltatory bouncing of a ball, accumulation of water and the risk of injury to the players may be bigger.

The court’s evenness is measured with the ruler put on the surface.
