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 MUGA pitches of the most versatile sporting systems on the market.

 

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 MUGA pitches 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. 


HOW TO CUSTOMISE A MULTI USE GAMES AREA

When it comes to creating your ideal Multi Use Games Area, there are various key elements to take into consideration. What do you want the multi sport arena to look like? Is it going to be a football MUGA, a hockey MUGA, or something else entirely? What entry/exit points will you have, and are they accessible for those with disabilities? With over 40,000 combinations available, it may seem overwhelming. But don’t worry, KOMPAN’s experts are here to help.

THE BENEFITS OF A MULTI USE GAMES AREA

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:

Versatility: 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. 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.

Community Spirit: Sports brings people together, and Multi Use Games Areas have the potential to serve as a hub for socialisation and team spirit. By installing a MUGA, members of the local area will have a dedicated 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.

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. MUGA pitches 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.

Physical Activity: Sedentary lifestyles are becoming evermore present in society. From spending too much time on games consoles to working at a desk all day, many of us aren't moving our bodies the way they were intended to. Now more than ever, we need opportunities for physical activity in our local communities. By installing a Multi Use Games Area, locals of all ages may be encouraged to get more active and enjoy the great outdoors.
