Best Answer

Tennis is played on a rectangular flat surface, usually of grass, clay, or concrete (hard court). The court is 78 feet (23.77 m) long, and its width is 27 feet (8.23 m) for singles matches and 36 feet (10.97 m) for doubles matches. Additional clear space around the court is needed in order for players to reach overrun balls. 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 m) high at the posts, and 3 feet (914 mm) high in the center. The mesh ("holes") of the net may be of any shape, but must be small enough to prevent a tennis ball from going through the net. Since the ball is approximately 2-1/2" wide, the mesh must be smaller than that. The court on the right side of each player is called the deuce court, while the left side is called the ad court. The area need for a tennis court is 120' by 60' oriented north-south. A narrow court can be 120' - 55'.

The lines are typically 1"-2" wide, but the baselines may be up to 4" wide. All lines must be within the court boundaries (i.e., the outermost edge of the line must be within the court).

The tennis court shall be a rectangle, 78 feet long and, for singles matches, 27 feet wide and 36 feet wide for doubles matches.

Service lines are two lines drawn between the singles sidelines, 21 feet from each side of the net, parallel with the net.

Center servicelines are drawn on each side of the net, between the serviceline and the net. The center serviceline is parallel with the singles sidelines and half way between them. This results in the area being divided into two equal parts known as the service courts.
