What Is MUGA Flooring?

MUGA stands for Multi-Use Games Area. MUGA flooring is sports flooring designed to accommodate a wide range of sports, including ground hockey, football, netball, basketball and tennis on a single surface with no modification.

MUGA flooring can be specified indoors and outdoors. The only difference between the systems is their permeability. Outdoor MUGA flooring is more permeable so that water can drain away to prevent pooling in wet weather.

MUGA flooring is incredibly versatile and has an impact-absorbing surface. Even hard surfaces like acrylic can be modified with elastic layers. If you have specific performance requirements, you may be better off with a specialised surface. Otherwise, MUGA flooring is a good option if you want to accommodate several sports.

What Is MUGA Flooring Made From?

MUGA flooring does not describe any single material but a range of materials that are specified to accommodate different groups of sports.

MUGA flooring can be made from anything so long as the material accommodates multiple sports. Common materials include synthetic rubber, polyurethane, acrylic, vinyl, polymeric rubber, tarmacadam and artificial grass.

The most common MUGA surfaces we supply are polyurethane, synthetic rubber (EPDM rubber crumb), artificial grass and acrylic. These surfaces accommodate different sports. Vinyl is popular for indoor sports because it has adjustable area elastic and combined elastic properties, so we can adjust how your flooring feels to use.

Specifying The Perfect MUGA Flooring

When we specify MUGA flooring for our customers, our first questions are what kinds of sport will be played? And at what level?

There are different specifications for MUGA flooring. MUGA Type 3 and 4 specifications are made from polymeric rubber. Macadam surfaces have Type 1 and Type 2 specifications. We can provide personalised advice about these.

MUGA flooring should be specified to accommodate the widest range of sports possible to increase its usefulness. For example, artificial grass can accommodate football and ground hockey and polymeric rubber can accommodate basketball and tennis.

With MUGA flooring, it is possible to create sports surfaces that accommodate a wide variety of sports, but it’s also important to recognise the limitations of any single material, and to consider multiple surfaces if you can accommodate them.
