**208.7**feet on a sidewillcover an acre. An American football field, 360 feet by 160feet, isabout 1.3 acres; 12 high school basketball courts are alittle morethan

**1 acre**.

Likewise, people ask, how big is a basketball court?

The Answer: I hope you have a **big** driveway!Aregulation college **court** is 94 feet long and 50 feetwide,while high school **courts** are supposed to be 84 by 50feet.The free-throw line (2 inches wide) is 15 feet from thebackboard,which supports a basket 10 feet high at theupperedge.

**1**chain = 66 feet = 22 yards = 4 rods = 100links)

**1 acre**is approximately 208.71 feet × 208.71feet (asquare)

Subsequently, one may also ask, how many football fields is an acre?

The field has a uniform width of 53 1/3 yards (160feet).If you calculate the entire area of a football field,including theend zones, it works out to 57,600 square feet (360 x160). One acreequals **43,560** square feet, so a footballfield is about 1.32acres in size.

The most **standard** shape for an **acre** isonefurlong by one chain, or 660 feet by 66 feet. To find thelinear**measurements** of other rectangular **acres**, justdivide43,560 by the number of feet you want on one side. Asquare-shaped**acre** would then be about 208.7 by 208.7 feet(because 208.7x 208.7 = ~43,560).
