When you have an all purpose games court built it is important to make sure it’s installed to the highest standards.

We provide many MUGA pitch sports facility services. This includes design and construction of new multi use surfaces along with maintenance of existing ones.

We have been working since 1997 to provide multi use games areas in playgrounds across the UK. Whether a primary school or professional sports club, we can help.

What is a MUGA?

A MUGA pitch is a sports surface which is suitable for multiple different activities. They usually have different sets of sports line markings.

Multi Use Games Area facilities fall into the following categories:

  • Type 1 and type 2 MUGA design specifications. A macadam surface finish with primary sports for tennis, basketball and netball. Coloured anti slip coatings can be applied for added grip.
  • Type 3 and type 4 Multi Use Games Areas. A polymeric rubber surface finish. With primary activities for netball, 5-a-side football, basketball and more.
  • Type 5A games area which is a 2G sand filled synthetic grass surface finish. These have stable and versatile playing characteristics for football and hockey in schools and clubs.
  • Type 5B surfacing which is a sand dressed artificial turf finish with hockey as a primary sport. This is due to the smooth ball roll qualities which are ideal for recreational practice and professional matches.
  • Type 5C multi-use games area MUGA court which is a Multisport needlepunch surface finish. The Primary sports for football and hockey as well as use in athletics facilities such as running tracks.
  • 3G MUGA. High quality artificial sports turf specification with natural qualities for football and rugby. This is due to the sand and rubber infill which enhance performance and safety.

As specialist contractors we have installed many outdoor pitches. This includes surfaces such as artificial grass, macadam and polymeric rubber. These specifications can be used to play many games and activities. We can help you design the perfect bespoke facility in the space you have.

Multi use games areas are great for schools and sports clubs. They offer a more cost-effective sports space for people to use. Since multiple sports can be played in one area, making it a more cost-effective option. Multi Use Games Areas, or MUGAs, are also great if you have limited space available. You can even create a MUGA play area by lining out your existing playground space.


Benefits of Multi Use Games Areas

These facilities are commonly found at schools, colleges and sports clubs as they cater for a diverse range of sports. Here are some of the key benefits of having a MUGA:

  • Suitable to use for a range of sports and activities
  • Versatile designs including hard court and artificial grass
  • Makes the most of your existing outdoor space
  • All weather surfaces that can be used all year round
  • No need to install multiple facilities for different sports
  • Less maintenance required as you are only looking after one MUGA area
  • School children can enjoy doing a number of activities

These are a few of the reasons why people choose to have the multi use games areas.
