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 sport courts 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 sport line marking to be installed onto the pitch.

The sports court surfacing on the games areas differ dependent upon the primary sport but in general the sport surfaces are macadam Bitmac tarmac type 1 + 2 MUGAs, polymeric sports surfacing type 3 + 4 MUGAs and lastly a type 5 surface which includes sand filled synthetic turf, sand dressed AstroTurf and 3G artificial grass. We often install macadam MUGAs for different sport 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 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 rebound sports fencing is usually 3m high but in certain areas the height of the twin bar weldmesh fence may be extended to 5m high to prevent children and kids climbing this enclosed perimeter fence.
Multi-sports 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 may be completed for 3G sports pitches to ensure that the sand and rubber infill is evenly distributed and provides the best performance qualities.
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 sport clubs, leisure centres or councils to make sure the multi-use games area is a safe environment for the children, kids and players.
