Watching the 2007 British Open I noticed an extra line on the inside of the service box, about a third of the way in.

What's the purpose of this line? Should I be concerned that I don't have this line? Will my drop shots hit the tin and my lobs go out without it?

ah ok. So in doubles mode the inner-line would become the new edge of the service box?

The extra line is the service box for doubles. The walls of that court move out slighty so that it can become a doubles court.

I just flicked across to some u-tube stuff and can see a line down the service box, which could be from some sort of training session, and certainly I would like my players to keep the ball inside that line for tight and deep!!

Other thought could be a join in the flooring so the tape is used to smooth up the edges?

Don't worry Mike if your drives keep that distance from the wall that is OK!! - if they go on the wrong side of the tape it could mean a penalty, eg 10 push ups...oops!

I like lines and targets for training purposes.
