I think of table tennis as a sport, so see no reason why the playing
area for table tennis should not be tagged as a pitch in OSM.
Chess? Not certain if that can be classified as a 'sport' ... certainly
a game of skill. Should there be another OSM key for games of skill?
Looking through th eOSM list of sports ... Yoga? As a sport .. think
that is much less of a 'sport' then chess. So I think chess should
remain as a sport.
If there is a need to have another key then there needs to be one for
things like yoga - 'key:exercise'?
