As the name suggests, a multi-use games area is one that can be used for a variety of different sports and activities. Understandably, they are becoming very popular with sports clubs, schools and other organisations that have limited facilities and need to get the best possible use out of their artificial sport surface.

A MUGA will consist of an artificial, all-weather sports surface made with synthetic materials, which will typically include multiple pitch markings for different sports. Those pitch markings are colour-coded to match each sport. For example, football markings may be one colour whereas hockey, netball and basketball markings are all different again. A MUGA is suitable for year-round use.

The way that your MUGA surface is chosen will depend on a number of factors. The most important one is the combination of different sports you intend to play.

We have a wide range of surface options and the expertise to help you select the one that best suits your needs.

  • Surface – For MUGA installations, we offer 7 surface options. Tufted surfaces with a high pile height are best for football and rugby, as they accurately recreate the feeling of a natural grass surface. However, for small ball sports such as hockey and tennis, a shorter pile tufted surface or needle punch may be more appropriate. We will discuss your requirements with you to ensure that you find the right surface to meet your needs.
  • Maintenance – Artificial surfaces are cheaper to maintain than natural grass pitches. You should still consider how you will manage the upkeep of the pitch and should choose a surface that you can realistically manage to maintain. We can advise you on the type and level of maintenance required for each of our surfaces.
  • Cost – Budget will of course be a key consideration. With our range of MUGA surfaces, we can give you a number of different options in order to meet your budget.

We manufacture our surfaces in the UK and they are installed right across the country. Many have even been installed in other parts of the world. Here are some more reasons why you should consider working with us on your MUGA project:

  • Experience – We have been installing sport and play surfaces since 1991, and our parent company National Floorcoverings dates back even further.
  • Quality – We manufacture all of our own surfaces and are ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited.
  • UV Stable – To ensure the longevity of our pitches, we use the highest UV Stabiliser in our fibres to minimise the effects of exposure to UV.
  • Peace of Mind – All of our MUGA surfaces are backed by a minimum 5-Year Warranty.
