Pickleball Court Dimensions Illustrated

How big is a pickleball court? Small enough that you can get to most shots with three steps and a lunge but large enough that you might run around a little bit, that’s how big a pickleball court is.

Generally speaking, playing doubles requires more quickness than long-distance running. You’ll be dashing forward and back a fair amount, with the occasional lunge thrown in for good measure.
