Cricket nets are an area, bounded by netting, often at the side of cricket pitches, used to practise batting and bowling for the sport of cricket, and enable smaller groups to play when a full game is not possible.

How to map

  • sport=cricket_nets - A node, or closed polygon to indicated the area of the nets.
  • surface=* - To indicate the surface construction of the area. Often artificial as grass would quickly wear out from constant use.


It is one of counterintuitive keys, "cricket nets" is not a separate sport. You may use leisure=practice_pitch + sport=cricket instead.
