    Basketball court demensions

    Were going to paint court lines on the concrete in the back yard. I cant seem to find any dimensions for a basketball court. How many feet should the 3 point line be from the hoop?

    So, there is this new thing called Google. It might help.

    3 point lines work out much easier if you have one of these:

    Yeah, I figured as much for one court (we do gym floors and game lining, but those take a few floors to pay for themselves).
