Basketball Court Dimensions
Basketball is a game played between two teams of five players. Goals are scored by throwing a ball through the fixed hoop at each end of the court. Basketball courts come in a range of different sizes, however, some features remain the same, such as the size and height of the basket and the distance of the basket from the free-throw line.
Court Dimension (taken from inside the boundary line)
A FIBA-regulation-sized Basketball Court is a flat, hard surface free from obstructions, 28m long x 15m wide.
The space around the court is a minimum 2m and is to be free from obstruction
Clear space above Court
If indoors, a minimum clearance height above Court is 7m
All lines are 5cm wide and uniform in colour (generally white)
The playing court is limited by the boundary line, consisting of end lines and the sidelines. These lines are not part of the playing court. Spectator seating must be at least 5m from the outside edge of the boundary lines
The centre circle is measured from the outer edge and has a radius of 1.8m. If the inside of the circle is painted, the colour must match the restricted areas.
Centreline and free throw semi-circles
The centre line is marked parallel to the end lines from the midpoint of the sidelines. It extends 0.15m beyond each sideline.
The free throw semi‑circles are marked on the playing court measured from the outer edge and have a radius of 1.8m.
