7.1 - Court Specifications

Outdoor courts vary in size and there is no “official size.” Generally, outdoor courts either have no or a very limited ceiling. They usually have no back walls; however, some courts may have a non-connected back wall surface considered part of the playing area. Outdoor courts can be classified as one of two general types.

(a) One-Wall. A one-wall court has no side walls that do not extend more than a few feet.

(b) Three-Wall. The front wall is usually at least 20 feet wide and at least 20 feet high. The side walls generally are at least 20 feet long and 20 feet high where they meet the front wall and are often tapered as they come toward the back court.
