Multi Use Games Areas
Multi Use Games Areas & Sports Pitches
The innovative Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) is the perfect sporting activity area for locations that wish to offer huge value in a compact space. A multi sport arena is a unique concept that makes popular sports, such as football, basketball, hockey, tennis, badminton, and volleyball, more accessible to the public. The purpose of a Multi Use Games Area is to offer one universal play area for different sports, rather than building a new court for each type of activity (which can be very expensive and requires a lot of space). One of the most popular types of court is the football MUGA, which can be seen in schools and recreational areas across the UK.
However, there are over 40,000+ design options available, making multi-sport games areas and MUGA pitches of the most versatile sporting systems on the market. Whether it's choosing the right surface, colours, or accessories, a MUGA or multi-sport court can be tailored to provide the ideal sporting environment for a wide range of activities. Despite the large choice, investing in a multi-sport pitch can be a very cost-effective solution for many communities and organizations that wish to offer a variety of exercise and sport options.
What is a Multi Use Games Area?
To put it simply, a Multi Use Games Area is a sports court that has the facilities to accommodate various activities. Each type of sport requires different goals and markings on the court, and the aim of a multi sport arena is to encompass this within one solution. The compact nature of multi use game areas (MUGA) and multi sport courts makes them great for encouraging active living in areas where it may be difficult to get moving due to space limitations. Our Multi Use Games Areas help to shape healthier communities through the provision of high-quality play, sport, and fitness solutions. MUGA pitches combine a range of different options, complete with appropriate surfaces, goals and accessories for a huge variety of games.
By increasing the uses and capabilities of such a small area of space, a multi sport arena is the ideal solution for schools and parks. Keeping games enclosed within the area means that this is a safe yet transparent way of keeping people of all ages active.
Sports pitches available for use with a Multi Use Games Area include football, basketball, hockey, volleyball, tennis, badminton, and handball.

The benefits of a Multi Use Games Area
A popular choice of playground equipment for British schools and communities, multi-sport outdoor arenas are a very cost-effective solution with the variety of exercise and play values they bring.
Due to the flexibility of a Multi Use Games Area, the list of benefits they can bring is extensive. Here are just a few of the main benefits of installing a multi sport arena:
Multi Use Games Areas are just that – multi use. Whether it’s a group of avid teenagers looking to play 5-a-side or an elderly couple hoping to play a game of tennis, a multi sport arena provides the perfect place for them to enjoy their chosen activities, be it football, basketball, hockey, tennis, badminton, or volleyball. You can even build your MUGA pitches with a wheelchair entrance to make them more accessible to those with disabilities. The possibilities truly are endless, and it is this versatility that can make a MUGA such a great addition to the local community.
Sports brings people together, and Multi Use Games Areas have the potential to serve as a hub for socialising and team spirit. By installing a multi use games area (MUGA), members of the local area will have a dedicated outdoor recreational area for group exercise. As locals begin to visit the multi sport arena they may find a new passion for sport, make new friend groups, or just generally feel more involved in their community. Beyond the benefits to physical fitness of the users, a MUGA pitch can also help bring together the community and allow for inclusion with the various team sports that it allows for. This benefit of MUGAs is especially prominent in schools where a multi-use games area can, help build social connections and improve overall well-being and unity of students.
Health & Safety
When there is nowhere suitable to go, people will find unorthodox ways to participate in the activities they enjoy. In some cases, this may involve playing sports in the street or on uneven terrain. This is not ideal and leaves members of the community susceptible to accidents or injury. Multi use game areas can provide a compliant, risk assessed space for locals to play group sports and enjoy themselves, helping to support the community whilst keeping everyone safe.
Falling into a sedentary lifestyle is easy in today's world, but it's essential to prioritize physical activity to maintain good health and well-being. Fortunately, incorporating movement into our daily lives is easy - and local communities are at the center, playing a significant role in promoting such an active lifestyle. By offering opportunities for sport and physical activity, such as installing Multi Use Games Areas, communities and schools can inspire children and people of all ages to get outside. For children, MUGAs can especially promote such development as they provide a great opportunity to quickly change sports, thus continuously offering entertainment in the form of sport. Regular physical activity has been linked to numerous health benefits and an increased overall happiness and quality of life, as recommended by the National Health Service.
