On the 1st October 2010 a new line markings standard for Basketball courts was introduced by the sport’s governing body, FIBA.

These apply for Level 1 competitions (main FIBA official competitions: ie. Olympic Tournaments, World Championships for Men and Women, U19 and U17 World Championships for Men and Women and Zone/Continental Championships for Men and Women).

They also apply to Level 2 competitions (ie. all other FIBA official competitions and the high level competitions of the national federations). However, all the national basketball federations are encouraged to apply the new court markings, if possible, especially for their senior men/women competitions.

Amber Floors Maintenance Ltd are, of course, deploying the new standard court markings as required.

For further information, please refer to FIBA’s Official Website.
