Fistball field size, dimensions and player positions

The Field / Court

In outdoor fistball, the field size is 50 m long x (25 x 20 m per half-field) by 20 m wide. In indoor fistball, the field size is 40 m long (20 x 20 m per half-field) by 20 m wide. Since the indoor field size corresponds with the regular size of a handball field, the existing external lines are usually used. The service line is 3 m away from the center line. For youth fistball matches, the ball weight, line height, and court size is adjusted to accommodate the age group.
