|Tools for this tag|
shot-put is an athletics track and field event involving "throwing"/"putting" (throwing in a pushing motion) a heavy spherical object (the 'shot') as far as possible.
This tag can be used in association with nodes and areas marking the location of shot-put related venues. Multiple values can be used, e.g.sport=discus_throw;hammer_throw;shot-put, whenever the same feature is used for multiple sports.
|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. |-|
|name=*||(optional) The name of the location, if any.|
It would be useful to mark the location of a nearby source of drinkable water if one is available, see amenity=drinking_water. Similarly amenity=toilets and amenity=shower . These should be a separate entities rather than an additional tag on the shot-put-related entity itself.
