MUGA pitch contractors install and maintain multi-sport surfaces at facilities such as schools, leisure centres and sports clubs. They are able to advise clients on the different types of MUGA surfaces available and their suitability for specific sports and activities and provide examples of previous projects they have completed.URL :https://mugapitch.co.uk/
Typically, the contractor will excavate and lay a sub-base followed by a tarmacadam surface. Once this is complete, they will then put down the MUGA surfacing which can either be a polymeric surface, synthetic turf, or macadam. Once the surfacing has been laid and painted, they can apply line markings to show off the various zones and boundaries for sports such as basketball, tennis, netball and football.
MUGA Pitch Resurfacing: When and Why You Need Contractor Services
Another advantage of MUGAs is that they are low maintenance in comparison to grass fields. They do not need mowing, weeding or feeding and are suitable for use all year round. Because of this, they can be used by school children for extra-curricular activities as well as being hired out to local sports teams who can pay a fee for the facility.
This was a key factor in the case of one MUGA pitch contractor who had been approached by a local authority who was experiencing trouble with trespassers at their newly installed sports pitch site. It had been found that agile youngsters were using the wide-gauge mesh fencing as a ladder and climbing up to the top of the 5m fence, which would pose a significant risk of injury should they fall. Recognizing their duty of care and their desire to protect trespassers, the local authority needed a solution.
