The semi-circle is also known as the restricted zone. The circle signifies the line where players can and cannot pick up a charge. If someone is trying to pick up a charge and is standing inside the semi-circle (or closer to the basket), then they are inside the restricted zone and will not pick up a charge, but rather a foul, having the other player involved shooting free throws. If the person is outside the restricted zone, then the person gets the charge and the other player picks up the foul.

What size of wooden planks do you use for a basketball court?

First, the basketball court should measure 94 feet from baseline to baseline and 50 feet from sideline to sideline. The halfcourt line should be marked in the middle, 47 feet from either baseline. The 'jump circle' at halfcourt must have a 2 foot radius and be surrounded by a second circle that has a 6 foot radius. From each baseline, measure 18 feet and 10 inches to mark your free throw line and the length of the 'lane', which should measure 16 feet total width. The 3 point arc in the NBA is 22ft to the center of the rim on the sides ( the arc starts 5 ft 3 in from the baseline, being a straight line until that point) then the curved part of the arc is 23ft. 9 in. from the center of the rim.
