Best Answer

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.
