Outdoor sports courts can be installed in a range of surface types including porous macadam which is ideal for tennis, netball and basketball in schools and clubs.
Polymeric rubber is another popular surface type for hard court facilities and can be installed with a range of coloured designs and multi use line markings.
Multi use games areas which are used for football and hockey will often have an artificial grass surface with a sand infill to provide comfort and mimic natural playing qualities.

Please take a moment to fill in our contact form if you would like any further information about the sport surfaces we can install and the costs for our services.
Porous macadam is available in two different types: type 1 and type 2 macadam. These surface types are very similar; however type 2 macadam has a higher slip resistance than type 1, and so it is more suitable for sports such as netball. Porous tarmacadam is a relatively low maintenance surface type, having said this we highly recommend that regular cleaning maintenance is carried out in order to keep the surfacing in excellent condition. Cleaning maintenance is also strongly suggested to make sure that your surface stays free from dirt and debris that causes problems such as contamination. Another choice of the MUGA surfacing specs that are available is polymeric rubber. For more details on the polymeric specification, please click here http://www.muga.co.uk/surfaces/polymeric-rubber-muga/ This surface type is installed as a type 3 or type 4 MUGA surface specification. This specific surface type is particularly suitable for sports including football, tennis and basketball. Polymeric rubber is commonly used for multi use games areas in schools and surrounding. This is due to the great drainage properties that the facility provides, meaning that the court can be used all year round in any weather conditions.
2G artificial turf may be sand filled or sand dressed, this is dependent upon the choice of sports you would like to play on your multisport pitch. Sand filled 2G synthetic grass is ideal for multisports like football and tennis, while sand dressed is more appropriate for sports like hockey as it provides great ball roll qualities – helping to improve the playing characteristics. Natural playing properties are also provided on 3G synthetic grass. These properties are provided because the turf is infilled with silica and rubber crumb particles. This particular surfacing specification is ideal for sports such as football and rugby due to its excellent shock absorption characteristics, allowing for comfort for the players’ muscles and joints. Safety and performance qualities are additionally enhanced when choosing 3G artificial grass, as the NBS specifications are all installed to FIFA standards.
The best MUGA spec is determined by the sports you wish to play on the facility near me. There is no surface specification that is better than the others; each surfacing specification has it's own benefits. If you are planning to play sports like football and rugby on the multisport area, we would recommend 3G synthetic turf, however if oyu are planning to play netball, tennis and basketball a macadam court would be recommended. It is important to decide upon the activities you wish to perform prior to having the facility installed to make sure that you choose the best specification for the activities allowing you to get the most from your MUGA.
Sports court design costs can fluctuate due to a number of factors including the individual specification, the dimensions of the facility, location and any extra equipment or applications that are required. As an example, you may want sport line markings on your MUGA facility and acrylic colour coatings; you may also want additional equipment like fencing and floodlights – prices of such equipment may be negotiated in an attempt to remain within your budget.
