MUGA – Multi Use Games Area Surfacing

Nova have worked with hundreds of MUGA’s across the UK and are experts in providing surfacing for your sports court. We have worked on new build projects through to transforming an existing games area with new surfacing.

Multi use games areas have always been a popular sports solution for schools, councils, leisure centers and other recreational spaces. They are a cost effective solution as multiple sports can be played on one pitch and when installed with a synthetic surface the pitch can be used all year round in any weather conditions.

What is the best surfacing for a MUGA?

There are several different options and variants when choosing your surfacing these can include budget restrictions, sports the MUGA will be used for and playing qualities.

Polymeric Type 3 and Type 4 Multi Use Games Area Surfacing

We recommend Polymeric rubber type 3 and type 4 surfacing for heavy duty areas.  This surfacing meets the performance requirements classified by Sport England in conjunction with ‘The Sports and Play Construction Association’ (SAPCA).

Type 3 Polymeric surfacing has great non-slip properties and is ideal for tennis and netball whereas Type 4 delivers a porous resilient surface which is suitable for multi-sports including football, basketball and hockey. Coloured line markings are then added for the chosen sports.

Artificial grass

Why not consider Artificial grass for your MUGA? Artificial grass surfaces are a versatile alternative for a multi use games area surface. Often referred to as a 3G grass surface, there are various types of artificial grass and we can help you choose the best surface for your space.
