There is a big field on the park.
They are building basketball court/field.

What are the different between court and field.

Hi bihunsedap

As to the first sentence, I would say "there is a big field in the park.

For the second, the word is court.

The word field, as it is used in your first sentence, means a wide, open and level expanse (extent, surface) of land. The field is also the area where athletics takes place or where one of the two baseball teams plays.

The word court is more precise. It is the area where some sports are played. In this sense, a court is marked with all the appropriate lines that define the different zones.

A tennis, basketball, handball court for example.

Paid attention that the word court cannot be use for every sport. For instance one refers to a golf course, a football pitch, a baseball diamond (but also field).

Hope it helps.

And also mind your question. It should be:

What is the difference between court and field?

or

One doesn't "build" a field, they build a stadium around a field (of play)
