how to mark out a basketball court插图

Best answer


Stake off a level area that鈥檚 94 ft 50 ft (29 m 15 m) for your court. If you want a regulation-sized courtlike the NBA and NCAA, find a flat area that has enough space for the full court. Measure the area and place stakes where you want the corners. Tie string between the stakes to markoff the entire perimeter of your court.
