Tennis is played on a rectangular flat surface, usually of grass, clay, or concrete (hard court). The court is 78 feet (23.77 m) long, and its width is 27 feet (8.23 m) for singles matches and 36 feet (10.97 m) for doubles matches. Additional clear space around the court is needed in order for players to reach overrun balls. A net is stretched across the full width of the court, parallel with the baselines, dividing it into two equal ends. The net is 3 feet 6 inches (1.07 m) high at the posts, and 3 feet (914 mm) high in the center. The mesh ("holes") of the net may be of any shape, but must be small enough to prevent a tennis ball from going through the net. Since the ball is approximately 2-1/2" wide, the mesh must be smaller than that. The court on the right side of each player is called the deuce court, while the left side is called the ad court. The area need for a tennis court is 120' by 60' oriented north-south. A narrow court can be 120' - 55'.
The lines are typically 1"-2" wide, but the baselines may be up to 4" wide. All lines must be within the court boundaries (i.e., the outermost edge of the line must be within the court).

The general rule of thumb is to first determine how many times per week you play tennis. The number of times you play per week should equal the number of times you have your racquet restrung each year. For example, if you generally play 3 times a week then you should have your racquet restrung 3 times per year.

That depends on the federation that the event is played under. In tournaments played under the International Tennis Federation rules, balls are changed after the first 9 games, then after the next 11 games, then after the next 9 games, then after the next 11 games, and so on. In ATP and WTA tournaments, balls are changed after the first 7 games and then every 9 games after that.
The number of sets played in a tennis match can vary based on the type of player playing, the league or tournament they are playing in, and how many sets they want to play (if playing simply for fun).
Generally it goes as follows:
Young juniors (12 and under): 1 set of seven or eight games.
Older juniors (13-18): 2 sets of seven games followed by a 10-point tiebreaker for a third set or a full third set of seven games [if tied].
Adults (18+/Recreational): 2 out of 3 sets, seven games each.
Adults (Professionals): normal tournaments - 2 out of 3 sets, seven games each; major tournaments - 3 out of 5 sets, seven games each.
Of course, there are always exceptions and there is no standard except in organized leagues.
