What Is A MUGA?

Multi Use Games Area

For those of you that may not have heard the abbreviation before, MUGA stands for Multi Use Games Area!

MUGAs are ideal for re-purposing a small area of unused playground into a sports or recreation area that can be used for various activities.

MUGAs are versatile and can be customised with goals, nets and multi-coloured pitch markings for different sports or games, allowing for multiple activities in a single location. This helps maximise the available space by providing flexibility and variety.

Example of a MUGA pitch layout

Take a look at some of the MUGA installations and playground markings we have completed recently below…

South Street Primary School, Gateshead

This was a weather challenging project completed at South Street Primary School in Gateshead. The pouring rain and sleet did not stop us completing the job.

The outcome… happy children and happy staff!

Mountfield Primary School, Newcastle

We are always excited when we get a local job which means we can all get back to our loved ones in the evening.

We worked very closely with the staff at Mountfield Primary School in Newcastle to design this tremendously colourful MUGA area. One of our absolute favourites!

Newcastle is one of the most iconic cities in the UK famous for its heritage, geordie accent, nightlife and the return back to the lofty heights of the Premier League for the mighty NUFC.
