A sports centre is a distinct facility where sports take place within an enclosed area. It can be a building or outside.

Facilities within a sports centre may include swimming pools, spa, solarium, sauna and/or steam room, sports hall, squash courts, fitness suite, aerobics studios, outdoor grass and/or artificial pitches for football (soccer), hockey etc and also any associated cafeteria, bars and other facilities.

How to map

Place an Node in the centre of the facility with the tag, or draw an area Area around all of the grounds, and place the tag leisure=sports_centre on it.

Specific sports may have a sport=* tag associated the sports centre itself, and you may decide to list multiple sports with a ';' (Semi-colon value separator) however...

It is better to use more specific tags on separate elements within a sports centre area. For example leisure=pitches or building contained within the sports centre. Use building=* for any buildings which are included within the centre. These can be given different sport and leisure tags. Note that you should not place the leisure=sports_centre on inner elements. Use this tag once on the outer area of the sports centre (One feature, one OSM element)

Spelling: Use "centre" (British English), not "center" (American English).
