3 handy MUGA accessories to consider

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Schools & Education, Sports & Leisure

One of the most useful types of pitch seen around schools, colleges, universities and public leisure facilities are MUGAs. Standing for Multi-Use Games Area, MUGA pitches are great value for money and come with low maintenance and superb looks. Of course, their multi-use nature also saves you from installing a different pitch to play separate sports on. With a professionally laid MUGA, one pitch does it all!

If you already have this kind of pitch or are planning on having one laid, it is also worth thinking about the many useful accessories you could install. But which are 3 of the best to mull over?

Sports divider netting

These handy divider nets are ideal for splitting your pitch up into smaller sections. This then allows you to use each section for a different sport or activity more easily. You may, for example, split your MUGA in two and have football in one half alongside hockey in another. Doing this is tricky without netting to mark out the area for each and stop balls/players straying where they should not be. This increases not only pitch usage but also gameplay. Durable, easy to use and UV resistant, this netting is something to consider.

Integrated floodlight posts

To get the maximum use and return from your MUGA pitch, you need to make it playable in the evening or if the light is poor during the day. An easy and relatively inexpensive way to achieve this is by opting for integrated floodlight posts. These posts integrate with your current sports fencing and save you from paying out for additional civil works that installing external floodlight posts would bring. Able to hold floodlights from most leading manufacturers, they look smart and provide the foundations to illuminate your MUGA when required.

Roof netting

Any sports pitch can suffer from is balls flying over the perimeter fencing and out of bounds. Unfortunately, it can happen a lot, whether it is a missed shot in football, a misjudged kick in rugby or an overly powerful throw in basketball. This leads to wasted time retrieving balls and potential damage to whatever the stray balls land on. Roof nets solve this problem by providing full coverage to increase ball retention.
