Most major American basketball courts are 94 feet long and 50 feet wide. This is considered regulation size for the NBA, WNBA, and both men’s and women’s college basketball.

In metric dimensions, that’s 28.65 meters by 15.24 meters wide.

International variations of the sport use slightly different dimensions. FIBA and the Olympics use a court that’s 28 meters long and 15 meters wide, which translates to 91.86 feet long and 49.21 feet wide.

High school courts often shorten court length by 10 feet while keeping the same width. Junior high courts and other youth leagues may shorten the court by an additional 10 (or more) feet.
