The playing field is a rectangle area with dimensions and zones as shown on Figure 1 (see above) and should be essentially flat, free of obstructions and afford reasonable player safety.

The playing field is one hundred (100) metres long by thirty-seven (37) metres wide. The playing field is broken up into a central zone that is sixty-four (64) metres long, and two end zones that are eighteen (18) metres deep at each end of the central zone.

All lines should be between seventy-five (75) and one hundred and twenty (120) millimetres wide, and be marked with a non-caustic material.

If space is not available to fit a full sized field, the end zones should be made shorter before the central zone is reduced. Refer to Appendix A.1.5.1 for more detail.
