I am after any information regarding any research that has been done on safe clearances from the surrounds of a playing field, tennis court, basketball court etc to obstacles such as fences, spectator seating etc.

I have searched the literature and come up with peripheral issues only.

It appears that some sports EG tennis have specified distances between the court edge and back fences and between courts. I am interested in finding out whether any of these distances are research based or "common sense" based. Any information from any sport or activity would be greatly appreciated.
