|The Dimensions For A Standard One-Wall Court
Wall. The wall shall be 20 feet wide from the
outside edge of one side line to the outside
edge of the other side line, and 16 feet high,
including any top line.
Floor. The floor shall be 20 feet wide from
the outside edges of the side lines. It shall be
34 feet from the wall to the outside edge of the
long line. The side lines should extend at least
three feet beyond the long line. There should
also be a minimum of at least six feet, but
ideally 20 feet, of floor beyond each side line
as well as 16 feet beyond the long line to allow
for playing space.
Short line. The short line runs parallel to
the wall with the back edge of the line 16 feet
from the wall.
Service markers. There shall be service
markers, lines of at least six inches in length
extending inward from the side lines, parallel
with the short and long lines and located
midway between them. The imaginary extension
of these lines across the court indicates the
Serving zone. The serving zone is the floor
area inside and including the short, service
and side lines.
Receiving zone. The receiving zone is the
floor area beyond the short line, inside and
including the side and long lines.
Playing zone. The playing zone is the floor
area between the front wall and the outside
edges of the side and long lines.
Wall edge. The top edge of the wall, if any,
is not part of the court. A ball striking the top
edge is an out.
