The Gerhard Pavilion for Athletics (GPA) was one of the first buildings established on the Ranney campus. Shared by virtually every student, in every division, the facility houses Walling Aquatic Center's 25-meter indoor pool, weight training facilities, a main gym with electronic basketball nets and seating for 450, an auxillary gym and a recently renovated Athletic Trainer's Room. Learn about our 2017 Rally for the GPA campaign to renovate this building (video).
Walling Aquatic Center
Ranney School’s Aquatic Center was dedicated in honor of Emmett Walling, who served as the Director of Aquatics for more than 25 years, in the fall of 2012. The center includes a 25-meter indoor pool that features a bulkhead with starting blocks, a new environmental filter and a state-of-the art timing system, which allow Ranney to host championship-sized meets.
Athletic Training Room
In fall 2014, the GPA’s Athletic Training Room was renovated thanks to Annual Fund gifts from a number of supporters. The training room is now fully equipped with the resources needed to support the safety and wellness of Ranney athletes throughout the training and playing seasons. The build-out provides rehabilitation and evaluation space, treatment areas, two taping stations, two treatment tables, a Thera-Band multi-exercise wall station, a rebounder with medicine balls, a weight cart and cold-compression unit.
The Guidone Track, located adjacent to the Gerhard Pavilion for Athletics, is used by students campus wide for gym classes and team sports. It offers a professional quality rubber surface, high-tech drainage system, multiple sports options and is completely fenced in for safety.
The Karagianakis Field is home to Upper and Middle School track and field, lacrosse, soccer and field hockey teams and is also used by our youngest athletes in PE and special programs. The fenced-in field is made of a premium artificial field turf surface that uses no-mold materials and meets all regulatory requirements.
Kelly Tennis Center
The Kelly Tennis Center is home to Ranney’s varsity and junior varsity tennis teams, offering five state-of-the-art court surfaces, upgraded fence screens, ideal visibility, efficient irrigation and bleacher seating for 60 spectators.
Ranney’s lacrosse teams can perfect their stick work while conditioning on a lacrosse wall positioned near the school’s Guidone Track and Karagianakis Field.
Tushar Bhatnagar Fitness Room
Named in memory of a former Ranney School student, the Fitness Center supports the physical education curriculum in the Middle and Upper Schools and provides preseason training for Ranney's student athletes with various strength and agility training equipment.
In spring 2013, Ranney School dedicated new grandstand bleachers made possible by generous parent donations. The stadium-style bleachers have the capacity to hold 415 fans and overlook the Karagianakis Field and Guidone Track. The grandstand is also equipped with a press box and video platform.
