Basketball Court Dimensions

The dimensions of the basketball court differ slightly based on the league. There are high school youth leagues, amateur leagues, professional leagues, developmental leagues, and international leagues. There is also a difference in the dimensions on a court between male and female competitions. In this tutorial, we simplify the dimensions of the court by looking at the free throw line, three-point line, hoop, key, and the distances between them.

TIP: We've included mostly both systems of measurement for your convenience.
