- I tagged this as surface=artificial_turf. Don't know if this is the best way. --westfa 15:14, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
Baseball pitch surfaces
A baseball field doesn't have a single surface. How should this be handled? Draw the earthen parts over the grassy parts? -- Bron 22:23, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
- Possibly by using leisure=playing_fields and sport=baseball? As of this writing, there are 62 instances of the playing_fields value vs. >43,000 for pitch. This would be an option for an entire baseball field. However, if you are mapping only the infield or the outfield, I think pitch is appropriate. --Ceyockey 01:24, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
One of the examples given 'leisure=pitch;sport=volleyball;surface=sand' for a beach volleyball court seems to be suboptimal and misleading. After all, there exists sport=beachvolleyball, which is not just volleyball played at the beach; they differ by rules, e.g. team size (2 instead of 6).--hagman 12:14, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Rendering of pitches according to sport
Hi all! What do you think about the rendering of pitches according to the sport tag? I could imagine that a soccer pitch could be rendered something like this a tennis pitch could be rendered something like this, etc. The advantage would be that looking at the map you can see immediately what sport is played on that pitch. What's you opinion? --ALE! 13:19, 21 September 2010 (BST)
- Some maps are doing this now, for example:

- +1 Those soccer fields look great. I would like to see the default renderer do this. Brianegge (talk) 02:48, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Quite often there are sports areas that are marked-out for a number of different sports, soccer,(field)hockey even basketball. It's not always easy to tell which. How should these be tagged. At present I'm selecting one. Iain1940
- Tag it with 'sport=sportname1;sportname2;sportname3'. See: Key:sport --ALE! 13:04, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
- Perhaps use a site relation, tagged with pitch, with areas inside tagged with sport=*, for each sport. Idea is from here. I did this here. --abbafei 2014/3/18
Tagging a large area used for multiple pitches
(See also above)
How should one tag a larger area of ground used exclusively for playing sports? One could use leisure=playing_fields or leisure=sports_field. 'Sports_field' seems good because it fits clearly with the 'sport' tag but playing_field is evidently already in some use and would be fine. To be clear, this is different from a situation where there are fixed pitches within an area for more general use which could use leisure=park, landuse=recreation_ground or similar.
In some cases the individual pitches within the sporting area will be identifiable can be tagged using lesiure=pitch with the relevant sport(s) but in other cases the pitches will either move through the seasons or can't be distinguished. Where they can't be identified individually then I suggest that we tag the outer area with a combination sports tag sport=sport1;sport2;sport3 to cover all the sports which are played on the sports-field.

Using on relations
I don't understand how this tag can be used on relations.
However taginfo [is saying] it has 1811 on relations.
Can somebody explain this to me?
