Different sports types will have different line dimensions.  Basketball courts specifically come in different sizes.  The National Basketball Association approved a pro court as 94 x 50 feet but of course the average home owner probably won’t have such a large space for a home court. Most home basketball courts only consist of only half a court.  The line dimensions for this can also vary depending on your space.  A good average home basketball court will be about 50ft x 50ft with a shooting circle with diameter of 6 feet about 44 feet from the hoop.  Your home court also needs a 19 feet radius around the hoop.
