In the CORINE land use maps and URBAN ATLAS maps, what exactly is classified as Sports and Leisure Areas?

Dear nk,
unfortunately and due to the holiday season we can not answer your question before 10th August. Thank you for your understanding!

Dear nk.
Concerning the CORINE maps, please visit: http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/COR0-landcover
Sports and Leisure Areas are described on page 114 in the document at: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/land_coverPart2.1.pdf
I will get back to you asap about the question if Urban Atlas has any own specifications or simply follows CORINE.

Dear nk,
Urban atlas is following the Corine classification (3 level classes) and introduces even more detailed classifications (level 4) for certain classes as it uses as background data aerial photographs (with far higher resolution than Corine satellite images).
Please take a look at the EEA report on Urban Atlas at:

Particularly chapter 4 deals with classification.
