A popular surface option for MUGA courts is macadam as it is versatile and hard wearing for use with sports such as tennis, netball and basketball as an all weather surface.
Polymeric rubber is commonly chosen for MUGA surfacing as it creates excellent playing qualities as well as being strong and durable, it can also be used for athletics tracks.
A range of synthetic grass specifications can be used for all purpose pitches, such as 3G for football and rugby, and sand filled carpets for hockey and general multi use areas.
We have a huge variety of different surfacing options available for MUGA surfacing and each surface type has individual playing qualities which suit a multitude of sports. All of our multi use games area surfaces are suitable for use in all weather conditions due to their good water drainage qualities, making them a great choice for schools and leisure centres throughout the UK.
The designs for each of the surfaces we install are completely flexible, allowing schools and clubs to have a custom built sports facility with coloured paint, line markings, fencing, floodlights and any extra equipment. Please contact us to discuss the costs for each of the synthetic MUGA surfaces we install. Below is a list of all the different specifications we offer for multi use games areas:
Polymeric MUGA surfaces are a long lasting and durable sports court material which provides ideal playing characteristics for sports like netball and tennis. Anti slip paint coatings and also line markings can be applied to polymeric surfacing in bright colours to enhance the safety qualities and provide accurate game scoring for the sports you choose to play. Our team complete the full MUGA construction https://www.muga.org.uk/construction/ for these surfaces in a variety of colours and specifications to suit each project.
Macadam multi sport surfacing is commonly installed at schools due to its durability and ideal performance characteristics for a range of activities including tennis, basketball and netball. It is a hard court specification which is easy to maintain and offers versatile playing qualities. This tarmac flooring can also have non slip coatings and line-markings applied in a range of bright colours to suit different sports https://www.muga.org.uk/line-marking/ Contrasting coloured paint will be applied onto the flooring for each different activity you choose to include. You are able to create your own designs for your MUGA court by choosing the different colours for surfaces and line markings.
3G synthetic turf surfacing is ideal for football and rugby as its rubber infill layer creates natural playing characteristics and helps to support players’ joints to prevent injury. The specification of 3G artificial grass grass can be tailored to suit each project and the surfacing can be installed in different pile heights to suit a individual sport. When installing a pitch for rugby we will always include a shockpad as part of an installation process as this adds better safety qualities and protection for players. The specification is the most technically advanced synthetic turf carpet used for sport facilities.
2G sand filled synthetic grass is a popular multi sport surfacing choice and is usually used for football and hockey as it allows the ball to glide evenly across the surface. A layer of silica sand infill is installed within the artificial turf fibres to keep the pile upright and enhance the performance and safety of a facility. Many local schools near me will have this type of artificial turf surface installed to replace muddy natural grass areas.
Sand dressed synthetic grass is a similar specification to the sand filled surfacing; however it has a shorter pile height. The sand dressed multi sport surface provides the best playing qualities for hockey as it enables the ball to roll smoothly across the short synthetic grass carpet. For facilities more focused towards hockey training and matches, the 2G sand dressed specification will be one of the most popular options.
Needlepunch synthetic surfacing nearby is woven together to create a stable and durable surface which is great for football, hockey and athletics. This artificial grass specification is often used at primary schools as it is a softer surface for younger children to play on and it can be installed in a range of bright colours. For a school sports pitch which needs to be suitable for a lot of different activities and games, the needlepunch specification is an ideal option to go for.

Another great advantage of needlepunch synthetic turf is that it is more cost effective when compared to a range of other surface types, like polymeric. Needlepunch could be installed in schools for the use of a number of different sports and athletics and is great for young people. The fibres of the surface can help to reduce the number of falls, as added grip is provided; this means children are less likely to fall over and hurt themselves.
The method to install MUGA surfaces will vary depending on the surface which you choose to install. The basic steps are as follows:
Hard courts like macadam and polymeric courts may have anti slip painting and line-markings applied after the surface has been constructed. For surfaces like artificial grass and needlepunch, you will also need to install the line markings during the installation process to allow for accurate scoring of each game. Our closest experts can install additional features like floodlights and fencing if required, so please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
It’s important to consider all the options and variables when you’re deciding which MUGA surfacing type would be best for you. We would also recommend applying a regular sports surface maintenance scheme https://www.muga.org.uk/maintenance/ This will help keep the facility clean and playing well. Our team can complete maintenance and repairs to all the sports surfaces in surrounding areas, so don't hesitate to ask if this is something you need. Budget, access to site and the sports you want to play will all have an effect on what surface specification you choose so it’s important to find out as much information as you can before the MUGA installation project goes ahead.
