Facility Rental Rules & Regulations

Athletic facilities

The City of Fort Worth reserves athletic facilities for games, practices, meetings and other special events. Rentals must be paid for at the time of reservation. Reservations can be made over the phone with a credit card by calling 817-392-7690. In-person reservations can be made by visiting Haws Athletic Center, 600 Congress St.

Groups or individuals interested in reserving a practice field (e.g. soccer, softball, baseball, etc.) can do so on a first come, first served basis by calling 817-392-7690 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday on the week needed. Reservations for secondary practice fields with lights must be made 24 hours in advance by 2 p.m. (or 2 p.m. Monday for same-day reservations).

When a reservation is made, the customer will receive a field permit. Permits can be faxed if the reservation is made over the phone. Customers are required to carry the field permit with them in case of a discrepancy over who has the right to be on the field.
