MUGAs or kickabout courts are often found in sports clubs, schools and parks facilities that are designed to offer people the chance to play numerous sports on the one surface, in a contained and safe environment. One of the surfaces that are often used is the Asphalt surface. This is commonly known as Porous Tarmac and is perfect for sports such as basketball, tennis and football. Asphalt can be constructed to suit almost any area size / dimension and the final surface is quite hard which can be difficult on the body but has excellent long term maintenance requirements.
There are also other types of MUGA surfacing available and these include 3G / synthetic astro turf all weather grass and Polymeric rubber systems. Astro – turf / synthetic grass can also be specified to house multi sports but has very different playing characteristics as asphalt and Polymeric is a multi sport system but is designed for ball sports like tennis and football. Asphalt sports surfaces often require an anti slip coating applied to the surfaces as standard and also the addition of different sports game line marks is welcomed, to ensure that the surface is suitable for lots of different sports.
