In most sports, the official technical term is field of play, although this is not regularly used by those outside of refereeing/umpiring circles. In the sport of cricket, the cricket pitch refers not to the entire field of play, but to the section of the field on which batting and bowling take place in the centre of the field. The pitch is prepared differently to the rest of the field, to provide a harder surface for bowling. A pitch is often a regulation space, as in an association football pitch.
