|Tools for this tag|
leisure=pitch is used for an area designed for playing a particular sport, normally designated with appropriate markings. Examples include: tennis court, basketball court, ball park.
Pitches may be contained within a larger landuse=recreation_ground, leisure=park, leisure=sports_centre or specific sports field (see the discussion/talk page for discussion on how to tag a larger sports field). A facility with seating for large numbers of spectators should be tagged with leisure=stadium retaining leisure=pitch for the playing surface itself. A golf course should be tagged as leisure=golf_course rather than as a pitch.
How to map
Create a node, or for preference an area for the sports pitch and tag it with leisure=pitch. Where appropriate also tag it with the appropriate sport using sport=*. The surface type can be specified using surface=*, particularly if it is not grass which is probably often the assumption.
|leisure=pitch; sport=tennis; surface=paved||a cement tennis court|
|leisure=pitch; sport=skateboard; surface=paved||a skate park|
|leisure=pitch; sport=soccer; surface=earth||a dirt soccer field|
|leisure=pitch; sport=basketball; surface=asphalt||a blacktop basketball court|
|leisure=pitch; sport=beachvolleyball; surface=sand||a beach volleyball court|
- lit=yes (There are lights above the field/court/ ...)
- access=private (Not just anyone can use this)
- capacity=number (If your area includes 2 courts or 3 fields )
