What Are The Dimensions Of A Turf Wiffle Ball Field?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: December, 2021

A wiffle ball field provides hours of fun with sufficient infield and outfield spacing to deliver a true baseball feel for baserunning, fielding, and hitting.

Whether creating a backyard field, community club field or an official wiffle ball tournament field where regulations are followed, knowing the dimensions to work within are a key component of the planning process. Wiffle ball is typically played for recreational purposes, so it’s not strictly regulated like baseball is with its national and professional standards.

According to wiffle.com, a minimum dimension of 20 feet in width at the home run markers by about 60 feet long from home plate to each home run marker is recommended. Intramural measurements suggest bases be 45 feet apart with the pitcher’s rubber 35 feet from home plate, while goneoutdoors.com suggests putting a pitcher’s rubber 42 feet from home plate. In wiffle ball, there is no pitcher’s mound.

A field sometimes has up to 5 zones demarcated by arcs. A single line is 42 feet from home plate from one foul line to the other. A doubles line is 65 feet from home plate extending from one foul line to another. If you are adding a fence to your field, it should be between 4 and 16 feet high, and the distance from home plate to the foul poles should be between 80 and 105 feet. The distance from home plate to the base of the center field fence or wall should be between 95 and 125 feet.
