A Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) is a versatile and dynamic addition to school playgrounds that transforms the outdoor space into a hub of activity, learning, and fitness. MUGAs are designated areas equipped with thermoplastic playground markings that facilitate a range of sports and games, catering to diverse interests and abilities among students. This innovative approach to playground design offers numerous benefits for schools and their pupils.
A MUGA is a designated section of a school playground or sports facility that is surfaced and marked for multiple sports and recreational activities. These markings, made from durable thermoplastic materials, allow for a variety of sports to be played without the need for constant re-marking or reconfiguration. Popular activities include football, basketball, netball, tennis, and more. The versatility of a MUGA promotes inclusivity by accommodating a wide range of sports, ensuring that every student can find an activity they enjoy and excel at.
MUGAs offer numerous advantages for schools and their students:

By investing in a MUGA, schools are effectively utilising the Sports Premium Funding to provide students with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of sports and activities. This aligns with the national objective of improving the physical fitness and overall well-being of young people.
