Fencing outdoor MUGA courts

Careful selection is needed to suit the most onerous sport from a fencing perspective both in terms of fence strength, rebound characteristic and height. Consider also integrating recessed goals and / or storage areas linking directly with the play area for keeping other play equipment securely and safely off the playing area.

Equipment

You will need suitable equipment for each of the sports to be played. Important considerations are the ease of installation and removal as well as safety during use and whilst moving equipment. Basketball goals are too heavy to move about and should be fixed and may be part of a combined football / basketball unit. Football goals if not fixed need to be socketed or securely anchored in position when in use.

Other

Floodlighting, litter bins, signage, foot cleaning and maintenance equipment.

MUGAs - Multi-Use Games Areas

A sports facility that provides for a range of sports can be a great asset. This type of facility is usually called a MUGA or Multi-Use Games Area. A MUGA can have high utilisation, particularly if the Multi-Use Games Area is floodlit.

It is important to identify the priority sport, which will be the primary factor when selecting the sports surface for the Multi Use Games Area. It is better to cater for a few compatible sports well, rather than attempt to cater for too wide a range of sports, with severe compromises for many of them. Programming of activities and movement of play equipment both on and off the playing area of MUGA’s is another key ingredient to their safe and successful operation.

Dimensions

Multi-Use Games Areas need to have dimensions which suit the sports to be played.

The MUGA may be based on a single or multiple court area, with removable dividers for greater flexibility.
