1) That wording excludes where a sport is played! It is 'only' for 
2) the wording is 'where' implying a physical location. The tag is an 
attribute of a feature and as such has no physical location it self.

Oxford Dictionary defines sport as "an activity involving physical 
exertion and skill in which an individual or a team competes against 
another or others for entertainment".

Similar wording of the sport skiing excludes the actual sport.... only 
for 'practice' not the actual sport...

As I see it the key sport is used for;

sports - the actual sport

sport practice


exercise (eg see actually tagged 'fitness' places)
