Multi-Use Games Areas
MUGAs are becoming more popular in multi-use game areas across the UK, especially with restrictions on outdoor play during the Coronavirus outbreak. They are a great way to get individuals of all ages exercising through the medium of sport. They also help to foster social interaction, which is incredibly important in a child’s development.
Alternatively known as a multi-use games area, MUGAs provide an all weather sporting surface and are designed to accommodate multiple sports in one location. They can be constructed from a number of different surfaces, including synthetic turf and macadam. Generally, polymeric and artificial turf MUGAs are chosen when ‘pitch’ style sports such as football and rugby will be played. This is due to the fact that these surfacing options are built to SAPCA and British standards and meet the governing bodies’ requirements for safe usage and performance.
The Art and Science of MUGA Construction: Transforming Spaces in Buckinghamshire
The addition of a MUGA pitch to your school is an investment in your children’s future, and they will benefit for many years to come. They will learn how to interact with other children, build self-esteem and develop teamwork skills, which are all key factors in their education and life in general.
MUGAs are also a great way to save space as they can be customised to suit specific needs. This can include a combination of different sports markings on the same surface, or it could simply involve creating multiple sports courts within one larger space. This can be a cost-effective solution for schools with limited outside space.
