What is a MUGA Pitch? MUGA is an acronym for Multi-Use Games Area. Just as the name suggests, these types of pitches are suitable for multiple sports that can all take place on the same pitch.
Multi-Use Games Areas have been popular for a number of years, in the shape of macadam surfacing suitable for various sports, including tennis, basketball and netball. Multi-Use Games Areas are a very cost-effective way for leisure clubs and sports teams to create a surface that can be used for multiple sports all on the same pitch.
For MUGA installations, here at Playrite, we offer 4 surface options. Tufted surfaces with a high pile are best for football and rugby, as they accurately recreate the feeling of a natural grass surface. However, for small ball sports such as hockey and tennis, a needle punch surface is more appropriate.
What about colours?
Many tufted type surfaces are restricted in colour such as terracotta, green and blue. Our needle-punch surfaces are readily available in over 12 colours and if the facility requires a specific Pantone colour this also can be considered.
How do I maintain my MUGA pitch?
Artificial surfaces are cheaper to maintain than natural grass pitches, but you should still consider how you will manage the upkeep of the pitch and choose a surface that you can realistically manage to maintain. We can advise you on the type and level of maintenance required for each of our surfaces.
