what I meant was that there are only 3 boules=bocce but 30 sport=bocce
(given the small total this is not necessarily significant), I'd still
advocate for sport=boules together with boules=bocce.

the thing is to determine whether a sport is a kind of boules or is a sport
of its own. There is a list here for instance:
but I wouldn't necessarily include this one as subtype of boules (on the
list it is) when using a tag in osm to specify a pitch:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowls but maybe rather use a dedicated main
type (sport=bowls).

Indeed this is what you can also find reflected in the current usage:
6 291
*sport* <http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/sport>
*bowls* <http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/sport=bowls>
boules=bowls -> 0
