ODESSA, Texas – The Basin Sports Complex, formally known as The UTPB Park, and managed by Sports Facilities Companies (SFC), officially reopened with a big celebration for the community. The Basin welcomed hundreds of members of west Texas communities to enjoy a beautiful day with a kite festival, softball and flag football games, bounce houses, face painting, and gave out prizes on the afternoon on April 30.

After field renovations and improvements, new fencing, and other updates, The Basin Sports Complex is ready to offer sports programs, games, pavilion and field rentals, and a multitude of other events to the local community. Facility general manager Andy Cedillo says, “This grand reopening celebration reintroduces the complex to our community. All the families that came out to celebrate with us had a wonderful time, and better understood our amenities and plans for the future. Seeing their smiles and excitement reassured me that we are on the right path.”

UTPB (University of the Texas Permian Basin) athletic director Todd Dooley gave a short speech before raffling off prizes such as a bicycle, VR set, and a 50-inch smart TV. “We are thrilled to be able to offer all this from the university to our community. We want everyone to enjoy our fields and pavilions and play, watch a game, and have fun,” said Dooley.

More improvements and renovations are planned for the venue soon. Many programs for youth and adults will be offered to boost sports participation in the Midland-Odessa community. With 12 softball/baseball fields, two tee ball fields, 12 adult soccer fields/36 youth soccer fields, basketball court, sand volleyball court, tennis court, four event pavilions, and a playground, the complex will bring events, vendors, partners, and programming opportunities to the west Texas community.
