Just because winter is setting in doesn't mean you have to forego sporting activities. Even if wind chill blows you off the local trails and fields, Fort Worth offers a wealth of indoor sports facilities.
Game On operates two Fort Worth venues. Check out Game On Arena Sports at 251 Settlement Plaza Drive if you want to play indoor soccer or flag football. The newly opened Game On Sports Complex is at 2600 Alemeda Street on land owned by All Saints' Episcopal School. Visit it for indoor basketball and volleyball.
You can also play indoor soccer near the intersection of I-35 and I-20 at 4ever soccer.
If you're a local public school athlete, odds are you'll play your winter sports at Wilkerson Greines Activity Center or Billingsley Field House. Athletes of all ages can join a swim team practicing at the Wilkerson Greines pool.
For adults who want to get on the court, you've got a number of options. The Amon G. Carter, Jr. Downtown YMCA has long kept its basketball court busy with leagues and pick-up play for members (they also have an indoor pool and other indoor sports activities). Y branches across the city also offer basketball and other activities you can do on a court. Don't have a membership? One-day guest passes are available to check out the facility. Members visiting from out of town are always welcome!
Hawes Recreation Center just north of downtown runs a number of leagues in court sports. You can find some games through the city’s Park & Recreation Department and at community centers around town as many of them have gymnasiums.
If your company has a membership, you can hoop (and play racquetball and other sports) at CERA, operating out of what used to be known as the Lockheed Martin Recreation Area, next to the new Whole Foods Market-anchored development on Bryant Irvin.
McLeland Tennis Center and TCU's Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center
Cowtown has two weatherproof tennis facilities open to the public. McLeland Tennis Center offers a pair of climate-controlled hardcourts and TCU's Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center rents out their indoor courts.
If you’re looking to keep sharp for your spring baseball and softball, look to Fort Worth’s indoor batting cages, including D-BAT facilities on the north side and far west side, and the aforementioned Game On Sports Complex.
You couch will get plenty of traffic this winter with relatives in and out of the house during the holidays. Stay active and check out these facilities for some sports enjoyment without catching a cold.
