Default Any indoor flying in Dallas area ?

Ive seen the posts about indoor flying in Weatherford and N of Ft Worth.
Was wondering if there was anything closer to Dallas or its suburbs ?

Im in Carrollton

Thanks in advance

None that I know you can use.

Kind of crazy too because Dallas Metro area high schools have better indoor football training facilities than pro or college football teams with the exception of the Cowgirls. 12 of the 50 or so in excess of 75,000 square feet of air conditioned comfort year round. None smaller than 25,000/ft2. FWIW a football field is 30,000/ft2 We are not talking a gyms. We are talking full sized football fields with high quality artificial turf.

Performance Indoor Training is the largest in the country and has real Bermuda grass soccer/football fields.

So there are over 50 public owned indoor facilities and none allow the public to use them. Exclusively for the kids soccer and football practice.

There is a Rec Center in Carrollton that can be rented.

a Gym with a fabric wall that divides it in half

I looked into it last year.
I asked if they had rules against renting it for RC planes they said no but you never know till you actually show up ...

Im not a church goer but maybe there is a church mearby with a gym that could use some funds from landing fees
