Macadam MUGA sports venues are very popular in the UK with over 70% of the multi use games areas being constructed as a finished surface of macadam. This is mainly because it is the cheapest options and can generally fit into most budgets, grants and funding.
The porous macadam surfacing on ball courts is good for multi sports because is hard wearing and having high porosity allows water to flow through the surface quickly making it an all weather surface sports court. The main sports played on these courts are tennis, mini tennis, basketball, netball and football. Usually an anti slip acrylic coating is applied to the porous macadam to give the slip resistance needed set out by the LTA, sport england and sporting organisations.
The design and specification of the macadam MUGA sports venues will decide the colours of the anti slip paint whether it is installed in an acrylic colour coating or a polyurethane anti slip paint. The sports line marking will be designed with the dimensions and sizes on the tender document. These lines can now be resurfaced, remarked and reapplied onto the surface court area and the anti slip coating can also have a flash coat applied to keep the slip resistance needed for the multi sports.
The construction and building of the MUGAs are usually built up in a permeable frost resistant open graded stone and installed between a pcc perimeter edge.
