Fort Wayne, IN: International soccer star and Fort Wayne native DaMarcus Beasley, the Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department, and the Indiana Soccer Association announced their partnership to build Fort Wayne’s first public, small-sided "futsal" soccer courts. The Beasley Courts will be developed in Packard Park on the city’s south side by repurposing underutilized tennis courts there into small-sided soccer "futsal" courts for use by the community.
