This is for indoor-only sport facilities? Outdoor pitches with multiple use (e.g. soccer and football) are not to be tagged sports_centre, correct? Dillwead 22:00, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
- No, the only example given in the text is outdoor. But this is not for a single dual use pitch. It is for multiple kinds of facilities together. Like a soccer pitch and an American football pitch next to each other, maybe using the same showers (assuming the soccer pitch is for the male league too).Jbohmdk 08:46, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
commercial, gym(nasium), sports_ground
I would like to propose to specify the type of sports_centre. At the moment leisure=sports_centre is used in the context of gyms, commercial fitness_centres and areas which include many pitches and gyms. So I propose to specify those objects to for example: sports_centre=commercial for commercial facilities e.g. fitness centres

- Commercial ? as in fee paid? Then use the fee tag. 'fitness' is not a sport, nor is exorcize. Indoor can be indicated by an enclosing building. Each pitch should be specified separately ... can be difficult if indoor or the satellite image is obscured. Warin61 (talk) 00:00, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Must be a sports center for different sports?
Must be a sports center for various sports, or there can be only one sport. There are sports centers just for swimming, tennis, soccer, equestrian, basketball etc.
So far I have interpreted it that several sports in a building should be. This is also described here:
- I think the definition lower down the leisure=pitch page is more general but still accurate description: "Sports facility covering a larger area." So, it could be a single-sport facility, or multi-sport. I think this is also implied on the leisure=sport_centre page where it says there may be a sport=* tag associated with the centre, and the value may list multiple sports. Could fix this on sports_centre by removing "range of" from the first sentence. --Neuhausr (talk) 14:33, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Single sport / single pitch sports hall
There is a discussion on the tagging list currently questioning the suitability of sports_centre for smaller, single-sport or single-pitch sports halls, of the typical size that is adjacent to schools. There are some voices recommending leisure=sports_hall for that (has some use already). That would also fit well into a scheme to use leisure=sports_centre for a campus that may contain several one or more sports halls and outdoor pitches. --Polarbear w (talk) 22:59, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
