The net should be 3' (36") at the center strap, and 3'6" (42") at the posts. This is the standard for both singles and doubles courts.
What are the correct dimensions of a court?

How long does it take to resurface a tennis court?
Depending on the condition of the surface, it typically takes 3-6 days weather permitting.
How long does it take to build a court?

What is the correct colour for a tennis court?
There is no "correct" colour per se; however, there are colours that perform better under certain conditions. Ideally, a player wants to have the best possible visibility for his or her game, and this is achieved by having the best possible contrast between the ball and the surface. A dark green court surface, for example, provides a good contrast to yellow or white tennis balls. Why? Because tennis balls reflect more light (or, technically speaking, they have a higher reflectance), and darker colors reflect less (or have lower reflectance). Two-tone colour schemes are often selected to clearly define court boundaries. When such colour combinations are chosen, the colour with the lowest reflectance (generally, the darker colour) should be used within the court boundaries. However, for areas in which tennis is played during the day, lighter colours are often chosen for surfacing because they absorb less light and therefore, minimize the surface temperature buildup. For night play, or for indoor courts, surfaces with low reflectance will require more lighting to illuminate them. Designers and owners will need for a longer life expectancy of the surface, the dark colours contains the most pigments which will outlast light colours, and for esthetic purposes, dirt or build up of carbon dioxide caused by surronding trees will be less noticable on a dark colour.
How much space is needed to construct an individual tennis court?
The overall court size is 60' x 120', however, due to vegetation, trees and drainage, a minimum of 5' around the perimeter of the court should be allowed.
What is the correct slope of a tennis court?
Please Note that a tennis court should be sloped as one true plane; in other words, water should drain in one direction only. The preferred directions of a slope on a court is from side to side (from net post to net post) The court should never be crowned like a road.
The recommended slope for a hard court is 1% (1" for every 10').
