Dimensions of sport pitches and courts

0 243

When we watch sports from a high angle view camera on TV, courts and pitches look much smaller than they really are and the sportsmen look like tiny figurines.

Unless we are stadium frequenters ourselves, little do we know about the actual pitch sizes. The tables below list the pitch sizes according to the official English guidelines.

Did you know?

Pitch sizes may differ within the same sport. Sometimes, there are individual dimension guidelines given for juniors. Or, there is a minimum and maximum size range for a pitch. Additional dimensions, like the size of the penalty box or the goals in football, are also a subject to the sports associations’ official guidelines.
