Muga construction is the process of turning a multisport facility concept into a reality. The first step involves identifying the specific needs that the facility should address, as well as the range of sports and activities it should be able to accommodate. This helps to ensure that the MUGA is properly tailored to its intended purpose and users’ preferences.
The next step in muga construction is determining the exact specifications of the desired multisport surface and additional features. This includes line markings, painting, floodlighting, and fencing among others. The exact MUGA surfacing spec is also determined by the primary sport that the facility will be used for. This ensures that the appropriate surface spec is chosen for the intended purpose of the facility, as well as ensuring that there are adequate levels of shock absorbency.
Choosing the Right MUGA Surfacing for Safety and Performance
There are different MUGA surface options to choose from including 3G artificial grass, polymeric rubber, and sand-filled needlepunch/multisport synthetic turf. Each option provides a unique set of performance qualities that can be tailored to the desired sporting use. For example, a polymeric MUGA is suitable for ball rebound sports while a macadam one offers a degree of inherent shock absorption.
Once the MUGA is constructed, it must undergo regular maintenance to maintain its performance and safety. This is typically performed through regular inspections, cleaning, and minor repairs. Additionally, it is important to make sure that proper fencing and netting are in place to protect spectators and prevent players from leaving the playing area.
