well, if you want to nitpick, sport is "used to identify one or more sports
which can be played within or on some physical feature."
I.e. it is not a tag about what it is used for, but about what it can be
used for. Subtle difference.

For a disused sports hall, I would probably add a "disused:leisure" tag,
"disused:building" doesn't make sense, especially if it is a used building
(used for something else, e.g. catastrophy victim shelter).

would you ask for detailed statistics about the usage (associations vs.
school) in order to be able to choose a tag? I would not read "leisure"
like this. All sport facilities are tagged with the leisure tag (AFAIK).
