The K-12 private school’s new field features Act Global’s Xtreme Turf Woven and ocean plastic infill making it 100% recyclable

Ranney School partnered with Princeton Soccer Academy (PSA) to re-turf 80,000 square feet of its existing soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey surfaces.

“Our athletes, their families, field owners, and the environment deserve better. The Elite Turf POWER system [Xtreme Turf Woven] is a win for all parties, reducing exposure to toxic chemicals, helping to prevent injuries, cutting costs through its recyclability, and removing dangerous plastic from our oceans,” said Paul Adams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Elite Turf. “Completing our first installation in the U.S. with Ranney School and Princeton Soccer Academy is an important milestone for us, and we look forward to introducing our product to additional athletic facilities and public and private institutions across the country in the coming months.”

Xtreme Turf Woven is completely recyclable at the end of its life due to a trio of synthetic fibers woven into an interlocked backing system, eliminating the need for a polyurethane backing. Water passes easily through the woven backing allowing soil to dry quicker, while fixation and dimensional stability keep the fibers standing vertically to resist matting.

The woven system is not only eco-friendly, but it offers performance benefits for the game of soccer such as consistent ball roll, steady footing, and reduced glare and heat.

Along with the recyclable turf system, Ranney School used Act Global’s ocean plastic infill which is salvaged ocean plastic synthesizes into an eco-friendly TPE infill.

“We are thrilled for Ranney School to be the first facility in the states to install our woven system,” said John Baize Act Global found and CEO. “We are committed to providing safe and environmentally conscious surfaces to both our partners and to communities around the world.”

Ranney School is an independent, co-ed, secular college preparatory school serving children from age 3 to grade 12 offering an all-inclusive soccer program.

Act Global and Elite Turf plan to provide sustainable options for customers nationwide for years to come.
