Tailored MUGAs from total-play Ltd…
14th October 2017
total-play Ltd is finding an increasing number of clients seeking its expertise to create bespoke Multi Use Games Areas – or MUGAs.
Particularly popular is our ‘Cricket-based MUGA’ solution; which sees a surface built to total-play’s ECB (England & Wales Cricket Board) approved tp365 non-turf system specification combined with specially designed, retractable netting. This sees clients not only benefit from exceptional cricketing performance when the nets are deployed, but an area suitable for general play and a host of other sports when the nets are retracted. total-play MD David Bates says:
“Over the past few years, the number of sports clubs and schools investing in MUGAs has been on the rise, and it’s easy to see why. Where space is at a premium, one facility that is capable of doing the job of several makes sense; from a budget perspective investment can be spread across several sports as opposed to just one, and a facility that can be used year-round is far more productive than one that lays idle out of season.
“Our cricket MUGA plugs a niche in the market – traditional MUGAs often fall short of the mark for cricket performance, as the surfaces are simply not designed to create the bounce and ‘spin’ of the ball demanded to help players improve their skills.”
And it’s not just cricket based MUGAs that total-play can design and install; the team has drawn on its vast knowledge of sports surface technology to help clients create more traditional MUGAs to meet their needs. The company’s ‘turn-key’ approach sees it handle everything from initial site visit to the specification, selection and installation of the ideal artificial surface, perimeter fencing, inset goals, hoops, floodlights and security gates to meet the client’s specific needs.
Recent high-profile projects have included the installation of a 50m x 30m MUGA at Chase Lane Primary School in Essex; a 32m x 17m MUGA at Stisted Church of England Academy School; a 30m x 20m MUGA at St James’ Church of England Primary School, Northants and cricket-based MUGAs at Churcher’s College in Petersfield and at Bromsgrove School in Worcestershire.
