Pickleball Court – Dimensions & Layout for Court Marking / Striping Tape

  • 2 rolls – Pickleball Court – 198 Linear Feet – 2”x150’ each

Pickle Ball Courts require approximately 198 linear feet of 2 inch striping. The total length of a court is 44 feet and the width is 20 feet. This is about 1/3 the size of a standard size tennis court. 880 square feet versus 2808 square feet. The net height is 36 inches high at the sidelines and 34 inches high in the middle.

Pickle Ball Courts are often laid out by themselves (stand alone).  However, it is very common to see them superimposed over existing tennis courts.  One configuration is to use the tennis court net as center and layout a Pickle Ball court within the confines of the existing court.  Another layout is where a pickle ball court is laid out on both ends of a tennis court with nets installed for each court.

The diagram at the top of this page outlines how the lines should be marked.  For a stand alone court on asphalt, white would be the norm.  However, when superimposing a pickle ball court over a tennis court, yellow tape will often be used to differentiate the pickle ball lines from the tennis court lines.  For stand alone courts on light colored cement, yellow would also be used to provide contrast.  The important thing is that the lines be clearly visible.

Temporary lines are often used so that they can be taken up when the tennis courts are needed again.  Our pickle ball court tape is rated for both permanent and temporary applications.  For temporary courts, use less pressure when pressing in the tape, and remove it within a few days.  It may leave a slight residue, but this will burn off in the sun over time.
