D is the answer to this question. It should be remembered that aside from the size of the actual court, there are other things that should be taken into consideration. There are some areas where the different items for the sport will be placed. There are also areas where other people are meant to be spectators.

Paddleball is an interesting game and it is normally played in a court that is half the size of the tennis court. If the length and width of the whole court will be occupied, this will only be problematic. There are different areas in the world wherein this is played although some people are more familiar with the form of paddleball wherein the ball is connected to the paddle with a string.
