Q:

What is the average size of a basketball court?

A:

A regulation National Basketball Association or college basketball court is 94 feet by 50 feet while high school courts are typically 84 feet long. Courts at different levels are not only different sizes, but have different markings and distances for certain lines like the three-point line.

Basketball courts get larger in size to accommodate the physical growth of players. The extra space allows more fluidity in the game and a greater challenge.

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world, consisting of two teams of five players each on the court at a given time. The goal is to shoot the ball into the net that is located at either end of the court.
