A sports hall is a type of a building that is designed for sports, e.g. for school sports, university or club sports. Typical sports halls often have a part with a roof in normal height, where the changing and washing rooms are located, and a part with a high roof, for ball sports and gymnastics.
Based on the original proposal and the description for leisure=sports_hall, use this tag for buildings with a single large room (hence the "hall") - there appear to be no other differentiators between the two, so proceed with caution or check how other similar facilities are mapped in the area.
How to map
To describe the kind(s) of sport(s) the sports hall is equipped for use the sport=* tag.
- building=sports_centre is a very similar tag, however likely intended for larger facilities with multiple indoor "halls"/rooms - there appear to be no other differentiators between the two, so proceed with caution or check how other similar facilities are mapped in the area.
- building=sport is extremely generic and may cover anything from stadiums through aerialway buildings on ski slopes to sports centres.
- building=riding_hall is for a building that is especially designed for indoor horse riding.
- leisure=sports_centre and leisure=sports_hall do not describe the type but the usage of a building.
