But is that really likely?

I notice that the actual lanes page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:lanes includes:

" Use the lanes=* key to tag how many traffic lanes there are on a highway
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Highway> (described on this page) or
other features like a piste
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:route%3Dpiste> or running track
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dtrack> (described on the
respective pages)"


leisure=track includes " lanes
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:lanes>=*, when lanes are painted
on the track." as Useful Combination

I think that just lanes=* by itself would be sufficient for most (all?)
sporting facilities eg swimming, running, shooting, 10 pin bowling etc
