A Multi Use Games Area, or MUGA, allows people to play a wide variety of sports in a compacted space and has become increasingly popular with schools and local sports teams. However, a MUGA is not just limited to a single sport and can be used for other activities including; netball, basketball and tennis. When planning a new MUGA pitch it is important to think about all the different uses you want to get out of the facility as this will help to determine which type of surface and other features you will need such as professional outdoor lighting, fencing, shelters or seating areas. A reputable installer will talk you through all these considerations in detail at the beginning of a project to avoid any issues, misunderstandings or complexities later on.Read more:https://mugapitch.co.uk/
An all-weather option
Unlike grass sports pitches which are often closed in the winter, MUGAs can be played all year round. This is because the surfacing used for these facilities is perforated, meaning water drains out and doesn’t pool.
The MUGA surface can also be made from a range of materials. These include 2G, 3G or tarmac surfaces. 2G MUGAs are short pile synthetic grass with a sand or performance infill and have a pile height of 24mm or less. 3G MUGAs have a longer pile of artificial grass and can be needle-punched or sand dressed with an infill. Alternatively, tarmac is a hard, durable surface made from crushed stone, sand and tar.
