Elite Turf USA Power System coming to GoodSports USA facility
Elite Turf USA powered by Act Global has secured three new U.S. installations of its premier, eco-friendly Power System at GoodSports USA’s facility in Wall Township, N.J. GoodSports USA will re-turf the existing multi-purpose fields that are used for athletic events, summer camps, parties, and more. Athletes, campers, and other visitors who play or attend an event at GoodSports USA will benefit from the all-in-one turf system that’s 100% recyclable. All three fields will be game-ready by June.
“GoodSports USA is proud to partner with Elite Turf to provide eco-friendly, durable turf fields to all guests who walk through our door,” said GoodSports USA’s General Manager Danny Pepe. “Our mission has always been to provide a safe and spacious setting for recreational programs that bring people of all ages together, and by installing Elite Turf’s Power System, we are doing just that.”
The Power System is USDA-approved and contains no PAHs, heavy metals, or carcinogens, and is composed of environmentally friendly, non-toxic fibers. The Power System’s patent-pending infill derived from recycled ocean plastic also aids in removing over 1 million bottles from the ocean per field.
Elite Turf’s Power System is built on the ProPlay pad Foundation, which plays and feels firm while testing soft, reducing injuries. The woven backing also allows the field to drain faster, decreasing dry time and increasing playability.
“Initiating another installation in the U.S. with GoodSports USA is a notable milestone for us,” said Paul Adams, vice president of sales and marketing for Elite Turf. “As we continue to expand our product locally and nationally, the safety and wellbeing of athletes, children, their families, and coaches remains our top priority.”
GoodSports USA is located on 10 acres and is a year-round sports complex for athletic leagues, clinics, camps, parties and corporate events. Since 1992, GoodSports USA has offered temperature-controlled indoor arenas, as well as outdoor spaces for players of all ages. Its indoor bubble is a 150-foot-by-225-foot field, which is enclosed and heated in the winter, and perfect for a variety of sports including soccer, flag football, and lacrosse. In the summer the bubble is removed and the field hosts sports outdoors.
