Maintaining Your MUGA – Part 1: Proactive Maintenance

Posted on: May 18th, 2015

What is a MUGA?

A Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) offers superior versatility, providing multifunctional goals and nets to accommodate a range of sports and games including:

  • netball
  • tennis
  • football
  • basketball

It is an all-weather sports facility with different artificial sports surfaces which have been specially designed to suit individual requirements and design. For superior performance, it is strongly advised that thorough maintenance is carried out on MUGAs to ensure the most return from the investment.

Therefore, our specialist team at Charles Lawrence have put together a two-part guide on the most effective ways to look after your MUGA to ensure durability and high performance.

Proactive maintenance

As the name suggests, proactive maintenance means that the surfacing is thoroughly inspected and cared for regularly to help prevent damage and general wear and tear. This type of maintenance plans for any issues which may arise, carrying out appropriate checks so problems can be detected as soon as possible.

This can be tailored to the exact requirements of your surface, so the most appropriate action can be taken to prevent any problems becoming a larger, more costly issue. Examples of proactive MUGA maintenance includes:

  • brushing
  • removing debris
  • applying chemical treatments to prevent moss and algae growth

This helps keep the facility safe for players to use and will prevent flooding or waterlogging.

If regular proactive maintenance isn’t carried out on your sports surface, a myriad of problems can arise which can be very expensive to correct if left untreated. If the surface becomes blocked with debris, water will be unable to drain through properly, meaning the MUGA surfacing will start to flood. Therefore, the facility will become unsafe to use and the multi-use games area may need to be resurfaced.

 Keeping your MUGA surface in top playing condition

A detailed programme must be devised to ensure your MUGA surface undergoes appropriate, thorough cleaning. That way, you are allowing users to enjoy their game safely

while encouraging a great performance. Hiring the expertise of a professional sports surfacing company will ensure the task of MUGA maintenance is carried out correctly for optimum results.
