MUGAs

What is a MUGA?

 

‘MUGA’ stands for multi-use game area, as they can be used for a range of sports and activities.

At CLS Sports, we are experts when it comes to designing and constructing the perfect MUGA for the needs of our clients. We boast a strong civil engineering background with over 20 years of experience designing and constructing fit for purpose Multi-Use Game Areas. 

Our expert in-house team is highly prepared to deal with any projects that you have in mind, delivering cost-effective solutions. From planning to the finished area, we are with you every step of the way! When planning your new multi-use game area (MUGA), there are some key points to keep in mind. What type of activities will your MUGA be used for and how often will your surface be used?

As well as designing and constructing your bespoke MUGA, CLS can provide sports fencing, floodlighting, sports equipment, equipment storage, dividing nets and ball rebound systems to allow you to make the most of your facility. We are a SAPCA Principle Contractor for the construction of multi-sports surfaces and synthetic pitches.

 

Macadam / Tarmac MUGAs

Here at CLS Sports, we can install both dense and porous macadam MUGAs which are perfectly suited to areas of high use. These areas will also be great for ball rebound sports such as netball, tennis and basketball.

  • Open-graded porous macadam MUGAs have the ability to self-drain, unlike dense macadam. This enables the surface to be played on all year around in most weather conditions.

 

  • Macadam MUGAs are installed in 2 layers; a base layer for stability and a surface/wearing course. Both layers are installed using state of the art laser-controlled paving machines to achieve the required level of tolerances. Tolerances will vary depending on what sporting standards you wish to achieve.

We can also install a large range of colour coatings to improve the look of your MUGA.

Polymeric MUGAs

Polymeric surfacing is also suited to ball rebound sports, however, unlike Macadam, it offers a degree of inherent shock absorption.

  • The thickness and composition of the polymeric surfacing can be altered to suit differing needs.
  • Thinner polymeric surfaces provide less shock absorbency and higher surface friction making them perfect for netball and tennis.

 

  • Thicker polymeric surfaces provide more shock absorbency and lower surface friction making it suited to 5-a-side football, basketball and athletics training. Again, a wide variety of colour coatings can be supplied to improve the aesthetics of the playing surface.

Synthetic Turf MUGAs

There are many different types of synthetic turf which are all designed and suited to specific sporting requirements. There are three main systems;

 

Sand-filled Synthetic Turf

 

A great all round, durable playing surface that can accommodate almost all non-contact sports at a non-professional level. The sand infill fills the whole open structure of the carpet pile which is short and dense.

 

Sand-dressed Synthetic Turf

 

This surface has a shorter, denser pile and requires a reduced amount of sand infill material, allowing 5-8mm of the fibres exposed at the surface. This type of surface is ideally suited to hockey.

 

3G Synthetic Turf

 

It is a long pile carpet that requires both sand and rubber infill to ensure the right characteristics of play are met. It is ideally suited to football or rugby as it is designed to replicate a natural turf pitch.
