A professional basketball court measures 94 feet in length and 50 feet in width. The court is divided by a mid-court line and includes a free throw line that is 15 feet from the basket and a three-point arc at 23 feet, 9 inches.

College basketball courts keep the same measurements, though the three-point line rests at a shorter distance of 20 feet, 9 inches from the center of the hoop. High school courts typically measure 84 feet in length and keep the 50-foot width, though courts in older gymnasiums may be even smaller. The three-point arc at the high school level is 19 feet, 9-inches from the basket.
