A MUGA features a polymeric sports surface and offers a range of benefits. Our experts can help you design a MUGA that meets your exact specifications and fits within your budget.
Designed to meet the needs of all ages, MUGAs can be found in parks, recreational areas and schools. They enable a variety of team games to take place, ideal for places with smaller recreational spaces that do not have the space to install individual courts. Providing young people with the opportunity to participate in team sport promotes social interaction, cooperation and exercise.

Maximizing Fun and Fitness: The Allure of Multi-Use Games Areas
A MUGA can be constructed using an artificial turf, macadam or polymeric surface, depending on the intended use. Those used for ‘pitch’ style sports such as football, hockey and lacrosse are typically constructed using an artificial turf which is manufactured from technologically advanced synthetic fibres that closely resemble grass. Those constructed for ‘court’ based sports such as basketball, tennis and netball are typically made from a polymeric surface that has an inherent level of shock absorption.
To ensure that a MUGA is safe and suitable for all, it’s important to consider the layout ahead of installation. The layout should be planned carefully, with consideration given to the most effective and efficient use of the space. In addition, it’s also vital to follow maintenance guidelines, in order to keep the surface in top condition and safe for all users.
