In an age where the ever increasing use of technology has led people to blame it for a decreased interest in outdoor sports and activities, multi use games area installation could be the answer.
A multi use games area, or MUGA for short, provides a sports area for children where they can enjoy a variety of sports. These might include the following:
Users can play the sports all on the same surface, while honing and developing their skills. It’s also a good way for schools, colleges, community centres and sports clubs to encourage children and young people to meet and make friends while they play.
What is a MUGA?
The MUGA is an all-weather sports surface made with asphalt, synthetic, or polymeric materials, which have different coloured coded markings for different sports and it also usually comes fenced in, in order to deter vandals and prevent balls from going out of play.
Multi use games area installation is perfect for places where there isn’t much space, but there is a desire to encourage children to have the opportunity to experience and play as many different sports as they can.
When diversity and choice play a part in sport, it increases the likelihood of more children finding an activity that they are good at, enjoy and want to play regularly.
Having your MUGA installed
With regard to multi use games area installation, there are a variety of surfaces to choose from. These might include tarmac, artificial grass or polymeric rubber, depending on what sort of surface would best suit your needs, budget and the sports you’re aiming to play on it.
The different surfaces offer different benefits, for example, tarmac and rubber are extremely hardwearing, making them great all year round. The rubber surface, which can come with an anti slip coating, is incredibly versatile, while the artificial grass is perfect for games which might normally be played on a field, such as football, hockey and rugby.
When budget is a consideration, as it so often is, the different surfaces can be provided at a range of prices, to fit a whole variety of areas, big and small.
