A multi-use games areas (MUGA) is a specialised sporting facility which allows a number of different sports to be played in one place, rather than building separate courts or pitches for each sport. This type of innovative design solution has become extremely popular with schools across the UK and is also a great way for local communities and parks to encourage people of all ages and abilities to get active.
A MUGA can be constructed on both macadam and polymeric surfaces, depending on the level of activity expected. For instance, a MUGA with a high-quality sand dressed surface will typically be more suited to ‘court’ based sports such as tennis and netball, but a high-quality synthetic surface can also support recreational football and hockey training.

Regardless of the sport or activity required, a high-quality MUGA will ensure the correct safety standards are met to keep users safe and protected. This includes laying the correct shock-absorption sub-base and ensuring the surface has the proper permeability to prevent moisture build up, which can cause a loss of performance over time.
