How To Draw A Tennis Court

By keeping some basic guidelines in mind, you can learn how to draw a tennis court. No matter if you are drawing the court on a grass or hardtop surface, the dimensions remain the same–therefore, it is up to you to determine what type of tennis court best suits your needs. Once the court is drawn, invite some friends over for a game or two!

  1. Find the perfect location in which to draw a tennis court. A tennis court can be made on either a grass on hard surface, and it is up to the player to decide where the court should be placed.  A typical tennis court is 36 by 78 feet.  Use a tape measure and markers to measure out a area this size. Purchase a can of white or black spray paint, and outline the perimeter of the tennis court. These steps are essential as you begin to draw a tennis court.
  2. As you continue to draw a tennis court, mark a line at center court. This should be 39 feet from either end line. Use a tape measure or sting to get a straight line, and spray with the paint.
  3. Use the tape measure to mark a line out twenty-one feet from both sides of the center line in the drawn tennis court. Use a string to ensure a straight line is formed, and spray with the paint.
  4. Finally, draw a line down the center of the court, dividing it into equal left and right sections to finish drawing the tennis court. Mark the line with the spray paint. Let all of the paint dry before attempting to play a game of tennis.
