sports that are played on a pitch When we say indoor and outdoor football ( soccer) we say it is played on a pitch , I think a field only for outdoor. However I am confused about the name for the places where other sports like : handball, volleyball, are played Basketball and tennis are played in a court. So can you tell me about the most common sports? Thanks

In addition to SuKi's answer, baseball is played on a "diamond" (or field) and ice hockey on a "rink".

This is something that varies according to region - what British English would call a 'football pitch' would be called a 'soccer field' in American English. 'Pitch' isn't used in American English - speakers of AE would use 'field' for most outdoor games. I know that you're focusing on British English for your students, but that's still something to bear in mind. Volleyball, squash, badminton and so on are played on courts.
