Spanish term or phrase: picadito (futbol)
(partido de futbol "callejero" utilizado en el "slang" argentino)
contexto:
Por corte los vemos calentando al costado de la cancha, también vestidos con ropa de cama, calentando para entrar. Se meten en el picadito.
De a poco el partido empieza a llamar la atención. La gente que pasa se para y se pone a alentar.

pickup game
Explanation:
Based on Serena's explanation of the word's meaning, the translation would be "pickup game." See the following examples:

He loves the game of basketball and spends hours shooting hoops in a gym or at a playground court. Parr and his coworkers at a Farmington Hills media management firm even would play pickup games in the office parking lot during lunch hour. (http://www.newstimes.com/archive2000/feb25/auc.htm)

While organized games have ten players on the court at once, a pickup game can include as few as two players1. Sometimes a pickup game will even involve an odd combination of players, such as three players against two. The term 'pickup' refers to the manner in which games are sometimes started. You might go to the local gym with a few friends and 'pick up' some additional players to get a full team. Then you have to 'pick up' a game by finding another team to play. Often a group of players will just choose up sides and start playing. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A209927)

Hope it helps.

picadito


Explanation:
No creo que ese término tenga una traducción. Yo lo dejaría tal cual y colocaría entre paréntesis la explicación de lo que significa.
Un picadito es un partido amistoso que se puede jugar en la calle, en un campito, en cualquier lugar que tenga un poco de espacio y donde se pueda reunir un grupo de amigos.

Espero haberte sido útil. :-)
