Keys and Values

Tagging scheme for sport=futsal
Key Description
name=* (optional) The name of the location, if any.
leisure=* Use this tag to describe the nature of the venue, i.e. leisure=pitch if you are marking an outdoor court or leisure=sport_centre if you are marking a whole building containing an indoor court. If the building contains multiple pitches, i.e. two courts side by side, it can be useful to mark the building as a sport centre and the individual courts as pitches. However, in this case the sport=* tag should be used only for the pitches, not for the building.
building=yes (optional) Use this tag if you are marking the location of an entire building. Do not use this tag if you are only marking the area of the pitch, whether inside a building or outdoor.
surface=* (optional) Use this tag to describe the type of surface available. For outdoor pitches see surface=* for a list of possible values. Most common are probably asphalt, concrete and tartan, but dirt, earth and even grass are not unheard of. For indoor pitches you might want to use parquet or synthetic.


Especially for outdoor pitches it might be useful to mark the location of a nearby source of drinkable water if one is available, using the the tags amenity=fountain or amenity=drinking_water. However, this should be a separate entity rather than an additional tag on the basketball-related entity itself.
