Tennis court site plan
Whenplanning the layout of the courts, it is necessary to provide sufficient spacearound each court to be able to play comfortably.
Recommended dimensions for the run-back(from the baseline to the backstop at the end of the court) and side-run (fromthe outer-most sideline to the sidestop at edge of the court) depend on thelevel of the play and number of courts (see table 1.0 below).
A minimum of 3.66 m is required between the sideline and anyfixed obstruction such as a fence, wall, floodlight pillar, etc. However, ifmultiple courts are grouped side-by-side, the gap between adjacent courts maybe reduced to 3.66 m for recreational play. In essence, the space betweenadjacent courts is ‘shared’, which recognises that the only physicalobstruction is the net post of the adjacent court.
