# How Many Acres is a Tennis Court?

A tennis court is either measured for a singles game or a doubles game.

### How many acres in a tennis court?

• Singles game: 1/21 of an acre
• Double game: 1/16 of an acre

Take a look at the dimensions in the below graphic:

### The dimensions of a tennis court are:

#### Doubles game

• Length of tennis court is always 78 feet / 32.77 metres / 26 yards
• Width of tennis court for a doubles game is 36 feet / 10.97 metres / 12 yards

#### Singles game

• Length of tennis court is always 78 feet / 32.77 metres / 26 yards
• Width of tennis court for a singles game is 27 feet / 8.2 metres / 9 yards

### Calculations for acres in a tennis court:

#### Doubles match

• 78 feet x 36 feet = 2,808 square feet
• 1 acre = 43,560 square feet
• 2,808 / 43,560 = 0.0645 acres
• Rounded to 1/16th of an acre

#### Singles match

• 78 feet x 27 feet = 2,106 square feet
• 1 acre = 43,560 square feet
• 2,106 / 43,560 = 0.048 acres

### How many miles does a tennis player run a singles game?

• 4 – 7 miles (6.4 km – 11 km)

A tennis court is tiny so it is staggering some tennis players cover 7 miles in a match. Ultimately, one’s style of play, opponent and length of game all factor into how many miles you log per game.
