Are all tennis courts the same size

The tennis court I use is up to the standard I guess. 78feet (23.774 meters) length wise. 36feet (10.9728 meteres) width wise. And baseline to fence is 20 or 21 feet (6.096 meters to 6.4008 meters). Are the professional courts, like from grandslam tournaments the same dimensions?

Net tension is also not uniform. It should be if they are going to be playing lets on serve in the future

Depends on what you mean by "court." The dimensions of the main playing area (i.e.: within the baselines and sidelines) is fixed.

But courts may differ in how much room they have between the sidelines/baselines and the side fences and back fences. The ATP tour has a bare minimum requirement that has to be met, but some tournaments/courts may have additional room


(Green area: fixed; Red area: varies)

From the ATP rulebook:

As a guide for international competitions, the recommended minimum distance between the baselines and the backstops should be 21 feet (6.40 m) and between the sidelines and the sidestops the recommended minimum distance should be 12 feet (3.66 m).

As a guide for recreational and Club play, the recommended minimum distance between the baselines and the backstops should be 18 feet (5.48 m) and between the sidelines and the sidestops the recommended minimum distance should be 10 feet (3.05 m).

when I was little I legit thought the professional courts the "big guys" play on are bigger because they have more strength to hit he ball further.

truly wonderful the mind of a child is.

10 years ago a lot of tournaments had weird camera angle that made courts look ridiculously long/short on TV. It actually added some fun at the time, now all tournaments’ courts look the same like in video games
