leisure=pitch has never sat well with many sports;
table tennis .. a pitch?
chess .. a pitch?
cricket.. the pitch is the bit in the middle .. not the playing area 
which is a 'field'...

leisure=sports_field might be better than pitch?

As for searching for sports .. some sports are leisure=track, some 
highway=raceway, some landuse=recreation_ground ...  best top search on
