The word pitted is the past tense of the verb 'to pit'. It basically refers to something that is marked by pits. It can also be used to describe something from which the pit is removed, as in a fruit, for example pitted dates.

Pitted can also be used as an adjective to describe something that is pitted with cell-like cavities. It means the same as words like alveolate, honeycombed etc.

A pitted surface is one that is marked with depressions or cavities such as craters on the moon.

It can also be used in a different context, that is, to set or instigate against another in direct competition for example, a battle that pitted father against son.

In sports terminology, it refers to the halting of a car to refuel in the course of an auto race.
