Creating the Perfect Pitch: A Step-by-Step Guide to Netball Line Marking Installation
There are many different types of basketball court markings that define the playing area. The most common include lane lines and the centre and free throw circle. The midcourt line marks a boundary that splits the offensive area in half, with most levels of basketball limiting an attacking team to only having 8 to 10 seconds on the other side of the line before the ball is out of bounds. The three point line or arc is an imaginary dividing line from the basket that is marked at different distances for different levels of play.
The block is a buffer area painted on the lane lines that separates offensive and defensive players during a free throw attempt. It is a strategic area and whoever establishes a position on the block first will gain a definite advantage. The elbow is an area of the court where the free throw line meets the lane line and is another strategic area. Anyone who gets to the elbow will be in a prime position for dribble penetration.
