The Sepak Takraw court is standard in size and is about equal to a doubles badminton court, 13.4 m X 6.1 m (20 ft. X 44 ft.), which makes Takraw very easy to introduce into schools as a new sport. Takraw may be played indoors or outdoors, although most major regional or world championship tournaments are played in indoor stadiums on rubber type of court mats that are available in Asia at Gajah Emas®, Malaysia.

The playing surface must be flat, horizontal and uniform. The width of the lines bounding the court should be .04 m (1 1/2; inches) measured and drawn inward from the outer edge of the court measurements. Court boarders should be at least 3 m (about 10 feet) away from all obstacles.

Centre Line: The centre line of .02 m (1 inch) should be drawn equally dividing the right and left court.

Quarter Circles: At the corner of each centre line, a quarter circle shall be drawn from the side boundary line to the centre line with a radius of .9 m (3 ft.) measured and drawn from the outer edge of the .9 m (3 ft.) radius and side boundary line.

The Service Circle: The service circle of .3 m (1 ft.) radius shall be drawn on each half of the court, the centre of which is 2.45 m (8 ft.) in from the baseline of the court and 3.05 m (10 ft.) in from the sidelines. The service circle is measured and drawn from the centre to the outward edge of the .3 m (1 ft.) radius.

Height of the Net: 1.52 m (5 ft.) at the centre and 1.55 m (5ft. 1 inch) at the posts for men; 1.42 m (4 ft. 8 inches) at the centre and 1.45 m (4 ft. 9 inches) at the posts for women. Many schools simply use their badminton nets for Takraw (but of course they will eventually wear out faster).

Height of the Posts: ISTAF regulations call for the posts to be1.55 m (5 ft. 1 inch), but any badminton or volleyball posts may easily be used as long as the net is secured to the desired height.

Free Area: An area of 3m (or 10 feet) outside the court boundaries should be free of obstacles.

Please Note: Commencing February 16, 2002, rules regarding scoring for Sepak Takraw have been changed to a rally point scoring system.
