Multi use games areas are versatile sports facilities that can be used for a range of activities in schools, colleges and clubs throughout the UK.
Many organisations have MUGA sports courts installed in macadam, polymeric rubber or artificial grass for use with a range of activities including tennis, football, netball and basketball.
We can install these all purpose facilities at various locations in the UK to create multi use surfaces which are durable and versatile.
We have installed many multi-use games areas these are designed and specified to meet playing characteristics for varied sports including football, netball, tennis and basketball. The MUGA sports court can vary in size, dimensions and measurements because of restrictions on site but the most common dimensions are 38m x 18m or 35m x 17m which allows all the sports line marking to be installed onto the pitch.
The design and specification of the MUGA obviously affects the costs and prices of the quotation needed to be submitted for budget, funding and planning. Please fill in our contact form to talk about the costs of installing a multi purpose sports facility at your school, college, university or club.
The sports court surfacing on the multi use games areas differ dependent on the primary sport but in general the sports surfaces are macadam Bitmac tarmac type 1 + 2 MUGAs, polymeric sport surfacing type 3 + 4 MUGAs and lastly a type 5 MUGA surface which includes sand filled synthetic turf, sand dressed AstroTurf and 3G artificial grass. We often install macadam MUGAs for different sports and leisure facilities and these area ideal for schools as they are easy to maintain throughout the year.
These are all porous flooring options making them all weather pitches. The majority of the sports court multi use games areas are floodlit which allows the facility to be rented out at night because the floodlights allows the sports court to be lit during the dark nights which is usually enclosed by a rebound fence.
The MUGA rebound sports fencing is usually 3m high but in certain areas the height of the twin bar weldmesh fence can be extended to 5m high to prevent children and kids climbing this enclosed perimeter fence.
MUGAs are an outdoor external recreational play area that need regular maintenance to make sure it keeps the full safety measures and surface performance. On-going maintenance procedures include deep cleaning, drag brushing, rejuvenations and possibly even resurfacing to upgrade the existing surface. Maintenance can be completed for 3G sports pitches to ensure that the sand and rubber infill is evenly distributed and provides the best performance qualities.
Multi use games area testing can be carried out to run reports to see whether the flooring meets the playing performances of FIFA, AENA, ITF or Sport England. The governing bodies set out testing parameters with regards to the MUGA slip resistance, ball rebound, force reduction, vertical deformation of the surfacing and many other tests. It is a duty of diligence for the sports clubs, leisure centres or councils to make sure the multi-use games area is a safe environment for the children, kids and players.
