>(not sure what people will think of me posting links to Virtual Earth
I would tag the pitch as sport=cricket, or if its used for other things then
landuse=recreational_ground. (leisure=pitch, or landuse=field* may also
work) They are all standard tags. That is a very similer example to that of
a village near me called badby. The green and the cricket pitch are
seperate though and there not really the same thing. Tag how you wish
though. My concern is just that a village green is not always as clear and
as definate as seems to be being suggested, and seeing as that all I map is
villages pretty much, I have seen quite a few of them.
* I always asumed a field was...well a field, but after looking round the
other day trying to find what people had been using to render recreational
grounds I found that it was "landuse=field"
