Comings and Goings: Game On for Sports Complex

Game On, the new West Side multi-sport complex, will open its second facility, Sept. 24, at 2600 Alemeda Drive.

On Oct. 8, Media personality Scott Murray and Fort Worth City Councilman Zim Zimmerman will headline a 1 p.m.-2 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony. Following that, Game On will host a Sports & Wellness Fair with its partners, including Active Spine & Sport Therapy, PRISM, and Rally Time Wellness, and top volleyball and basketball clubs from the area.

The center will include 12 indoor regulation volleyball courts, which are convertible to six full-size basketball courts; eight outdoors regulation sand volleyball courts; seven pitching and batting cages; a health-oriented dining facility; two event rooms; outdoor performance stage; full-service sporting goods store; wellness center; and an 11,000-square-foot APEC performance training space that will have a 75-yard track and 25-by-40 artificial turf field.

The new Game On is in the path of projected high growth for Fort Worth and Parker County. Its owners expect to host a number of volleyball and basketball leagues and regional tournaments. It will employ 50 people, the owners said.

“This new development is the fulfillment of a long-term vision for us to offer athletes of all ages the opportunity to reach their full potential,” said Trevor Armstrong, partner and general manager. “We’re able to provide the infrastructure and resources for all sports enthusiasts.”

Game On’s partnerships include APEC, a sports performance training company based in Tyler.

Game On in 2012 opened its first sports complex, a 48,000-square-foot indoor center at 251 Settlement Plaza Drive in west Fort Worth.
