That does not fit aswell, as it is not a sports_centre but more a kind of
amusement leisure/recreation. I can use it on one of the public swimming pool
but there you find two official swimming pools (outdoor + indoor) and diving
towers plus "under_water_rugby" and canoe_polo is played there. It does not
cover all as you will find a sauna, too.

I only tag the appropriate pools/pitches with sport=*.

By the way, how do I tag a pool which is only for women ? Do we have a gender
access tag so far ?

women=only ?
