Best Answer

On a tennis court, there will be four rectangles along the side edges. The inside line of those boxes are called the singles sideline. When playing doubles, you use the full court, including those boxes. When playing singles, you exclude those boxes as part of the playing field.

The alleys of a tennis court are the long rectangles to the very left and right of your court. This picture will give you an idea of what I mean by the very long rectangles on the left and right: They run along the long side of the court. They are only used when playing doubles, that is 2 players versus 2 players. This is to allow more court room for more players to hit the ball. During singles, 1 vs. 1, the alleys are ignored and any balls that land in the alley are considered out.
