The basic rules to calculate scores in tennis doubles (Part 3)

Pile marked 2 points A and B and tied a rope to each pile. A pile is measured in a diagonal line of 16.18 m and in pile B a 11.89 m is measured along the longitudinal boundary of the pitch. Straighten the two ropes and they meet at point C, that’s a corner of the yard we had.

In the same way as above, there will be angle D of the yard. We can check the past performance by measuring the length of the CD segment – the end of the yard has a length of exactly 10.97 m.

It is now possible to mark the point between I and both ends of the boundary in c, d, 1.37 m away from C and D. The line between the court and the tee line may be marked with points F, H, G by a distance of 6.40 m from the grid along the lines b, c, XI, ad.

The other side of the net will do the same to complete the court.


In tennis doubles, when only the single pitch is not needed, the lines are not outside a, b, c, d but the yard is still according to the above measurement. The choice of the angle of the last line (c, d) can be found by tying two strands to two points a and b instead of two points A and B and then using measurements of 14.46 m and 11.89. m and grid columns will be at positions n, n and a single grid (10 m) may be used.

When combining a single court and a double court and using doubles nets for both single and net play, two piles with a height of 1.07 m are required to be installed at the point of single combat piles. If the stake is square, the cross-section shall not exceed 7.5 cm. The center of the single support post is outside 0.94m from the outer edge of the single floor.

To mark the position of single anti-deposit deposit at n and n mark a cross + with white paint.

The above are all general provisions that are explicitly stated in the Basic Tennis Rules set by the World Tennis Federation (ITF). The information in detail will help you not feel surprised when you come on the field.
