The installation work for a multi use games area can vary for each project as it depends on the chosen surface type and the sports that will be played on it.
We are specialists in the design and construction of outdoor sports facilities and can create bespoke projects for each of our clients which suit their budget and requirements.
Schools and clubs often choose to have all weather sports courts installed as these can be used all year round due to their porous and versatile properties.
A unique specification can be designed before your MUGA court construction is carried out in order to remain within your budget and meet any specific requirements which you have set out. The installation of the court will depend on the surfacing type that you have chosen and the sports in which will take place once the facility has been installed. Similarly, the cost of the multipurpose court construction will vary depending on a number of factors including surfacing specification, area size and site location. For more info on specifications, make sure to click here http://www.muga.co.uk/design/specifications/ However, we will try our best to help you keep costs down by managing extra equipment you would like installed such as fencing and floodlights for your multi use games area.

Before the MUGA construction begins, our professional installers will perform groundwork and foundation tasks. This will include excavating the existing area and preventing weeds from growing through the new surface by laying down a geotextile membrane. After the membrane has been set up, a dynamic stone sub base will be installed. The sub base is made up of angular stones which help to give the surface more stability by locking together. In order to create a smooth foundation for the multisport surfacing to be laid on to, a macadam base will usually be applied over the stones. A shockpad can then be installed after the base layers have been set up; this will provide cushioning and support for players’ joints when participating in sporting activities. For contact sports, such as rugby, it is vital that a shockpad is put down, as it helps to prevent injuries and keeps the surface safe for users.
We have a choice of surfacing types for our customers to choose from, so that the flooring suits the sports that will be played. Our sport flooring contractors are specialists at dealing with a range of projects and designs. Polymeric rubber is ideal for sporting activities like basketball, netball and tennis; this is because it has excellent playing characteristics and good ball bounce properties. This type of surface also offers great slip resistance and can be installed in various colours. Since polymeric rubber - presented here http://www.muga.co.uk/surfaces/polymeric-rubber-muga/ - is a porous surfacing, rainwater can easily pass through – helping to prevent flooding, and making the surface safe to use. Another type of surface we have to offer is macadam; this is a low maintenance flooring which is also porous. This surface type is very popular in schools and other educational institutions for sports such as netball and tennis, as it is considered very versatile. To reduce the risk of slipping, an anti-slip acrylic paint could be applied which also helps to create a more appealing appearance, as bright colours may be used.
Additionally, we also offer artificial turf sport surface for sport court construction. 2G sand filled or sand dressed synthetic grass can be set up for sports like hockey, football and tennis. 3G artificial grass is also an option, which is more suitable for football and rugby. Multisport synthetic turf may be utilised as it is a fibre bonded surfacing , and is suitable for various different sports.
A MUGA court is a sport facility and surrounding areas which could be used for a range of sporting activities. MUGA is short for multi use games area and implies that the court may be used for multiple activities. They are often installed in sport clubs and schools near me, as they are a more cost effective option allowing individuals to take part in a number of sporting events in a single space. Multisport courts might be installed in a number of different surfacing types including macadam, polymeric, synthetic turf and needlepunch. For details on 4G and 5G pitches, have a look at this page http://www.muga.co.uk/surfaces/4g-and-5g/ Each flooring type has different performance characteristics. Different activities are best played on specific surfaces; for example football and rugby are best played on 3G synthetic turf, whereas basketball and netball should be played on polymeric or macadam courts.
Our experts can talk you through the best surfacing types for the sports you want to play prior to the installation of a multisport area. Simply fill in our contact box and we will get back to you with details on the different flooring specifications and the construction process.
After the surfacing has been installed, you may want our sports flooring contractors to install line markings and an anti-slip coating. Both of these help to improve the performance and safety characteristics of the MUGA. The anti-slip coating could be applied in a variety of different colours to polymeric and macadam courts, allowing you to personalise your facility. Additionally, the contrasting line markings helps the players distinguish between the different sports that are played on the multisport facility.
