A basketball court is a surface used for playing basketball, it has baskets at each end of the court and also has markings on the floor.

High school basketball court are different from other basketball court like the ones in colleges and also the one used by professionals.

The major difference is that the basketball court in high school is measuring 84 feet which is 10 feet shorter than that of the national basketball association courts.

The high school basketball courts three-line points is shorter than that of the national basketball association.

The correct answer to this question is 84 feet. Many of the courts may differ in size and shape, but there are many standards that all of them have. One of them is the length of the court. Another is how wide the court is. High School basketball, which is 50 feet. Then, there is the foul line.
