leisure=sports_hall is a tag for a facility used as a sports hall or Gymnasium. A sports hall is a sufficiently large single room, typically enclosed with walls and ceiling, that is suitable to exercise one or more sports indoor. Usually it has a firm, smooth surface such as hardwood which can be used as a court for playing a number of sports and fitness activities, but this tag has also been used for other kinds of buildings or large rooms including tennis halls and swimming halls. It might also contain subordinated locker/changing rooms, showers, and a depot room for devices. It can be a standalone building, or part of a larger building.
As explained on the wiki page for leisure=sports_centre, a sports hall that is part of a sports centre (e.g. a tennis hall of a tennis centre) should not be tagged as a sports centre itself (avoid nested sports centres) but can be tagged with leisure=sports_hall.
Use leisure=sports_hall to describe that a building (building=*) or a part of a building (building:part=*) is used as a sports hall. If the outline of the sports hall is not known, place a node with that tag at the centre of it.
The type of the building containing the sports hall should be specified as detailed as possible. E.g. when built as a sports hall, use building=sports_hall, while a converted factory hall would get building=industrial.
Use the sport=* tag to describe the kind(s) of sport(s) the sports hall is equipped for.
of a university
of a school
of a club
Sports halls of a sports centre
in separate buildings
within a larger building
