Outdoor netball court surfaces are a very common sporting facility in the UK as the sport has recently become very popular due to high profile sporting events like the Olympics.
Netball can be played on numerous types of surfaces and these can include synthetic all weather artificial grass, EPDM polymeric rubber crumb / tartan surfacing and asphalt tar macadam. Each of these surfaces can be designed and tailored to suit the individual specifications and requirements of each project and the sports which will be played on the multi sport facility.

Multi Use Outdoor Netball Courts
These types of sports surfaces can also house activities like basketball, football and hockey and they can be classed as true MUGA / ball court flooring. These surfaces can be classed as hard wearing and multipurpose and are perfect for facilities like clubs, parks, playgrounds and schools.
Netball can have standard dimensions of 30.5m x 15.25m but they can be adapted and changed to suit all area sizes, dimensions and budget requirements of the client. The most popular surface specification for this type of facility would be porous macadam flooring, this provides excellent ball bounce capabilities to improve the performance characteristics and give a good playing experience for the players.
These surfaces are often called MUGAs or multi use games areas and many thousands of these systems are installed in the UK. MUGA netball sports courts are designed to be porous and hard wearing systems that are fully durable and suitable for multi sports including netball and tennis. The permeability of these outdoor netball courts means that water can easily drain through the surface, preventing flooding and waterlogging which can damage the surface and make it unsafe for players.

It is important to keep your multi use netball court surface cleaned and well maintained to ensure that it stays in top condition to provide the best performance and safety characteristics for the players.

Whether the facility is being used for recreational games or competitive matches, it’s important to keep it in top condition for the users.
