MUGA Pitch Contractors

A MUGA pitch is the ideal solution for sports clubs, schools and other organisations that want to have an all in one area where they can play a variety of different sports. This saves them time, money and resources that would be needed if they had to create separate areas for football, basketball, tennis and hockey. Check this out:

MUGA pitches can be constructed using various surfaces including porous tarmacadam, polymeric EPDM rubber and synthetic turf. A MUGA contractor can advise the best surface for your organisation depending on the sport you plan to use it for.

The surfacing used on a MUGA means that it requires less maintenance than a grass pitch. This is because you don’t need to invest in intensive procedures like mowing, trimming and aerating. This reduces the cost of maintaining your pitch and allows it to be used all year round.

Step-by-Step Guide to Finding the Best MUGA Pitch Contractor

Type 1 and 2 MUGAs are constructed from open-graded, porous, frost-resistant macadam which is laid atop free-draining stone. It’s generally recommended that the macadam is applied in two layers for stability and strength – a binding layer and a surface (wearing) course. The binding base layer should have an average compacted depth of 40mm and the surface course should be a nominal aggregate size of 14mm or 20mm.

The MUGA at Barrow Hills School was constructed by ETC Sports Surfaces in 2008 to the specifications set out by their building surveyors. It was a success and now the school has a multipurpose all weather surface which they can enjoy throughout the seasons without worrying about bad weather cancelling games.
