Surrounding the tennis court, the width of the back lines is 10 cm, the side and the other lines are 2.5-5 cm. The service lines are positioned parallel to the net at a distance of 6.40 m. These lines should be 5,49 m away from the back line. Service lines should be created by dividing the area between service lines and side lines by a line with two equal parts.
