Aims & Backgrounds: The present study analyzes the spatial location of sports facilities and assessing the access to sports centers according to their spatial distribution pattern at the level of communication networks in Garmsar County. The main purpose is to identify the distribution and distribution status of sports applications in the city and determine the shortcomings and needs.
Methodology: This research is an applied and descriptive - analytic method. After determining the per capita consumption of sport in the Garmsar County, using the Williamson model, the distribution per capita of these centers was measured at the district level according to population density. In the second part, using the Moran model, the spatial distribution pattern of sports applications (outdoor, indoor and all sports) was measured based on the area of ​​these applications.  
Findings: The results indicate that the sports spaces in Garmsar city are 0.79 square meters he total per capita sports space per household is about 2.11 square meters. Also, per capita  related to outdoor sports spaces are more than per capita  for indoor spaces (0.65 vs. 0.23 square meters per person). Meanwhile, the total sports space in Iwanki is higher than Garmsar (0.839 versus 0.619). This is while the population density of Garmsar is 10.35 and Iwanki is 4.58.  Thus, with increasing population density, the total area of ​​sports spaces (open and covered) decreases with the slope of the line R2 = 0.5985.
Conclusion: Results indicates that managers and planners are not paying attention to social justice in the distribution of sports spaces in the study area.
