Maintaining Your MUGA – Part 2: Reactive Maintenance

Posted on: July 23rd, 2015


Following on from our blog post in May which features tips on how to carry out proactive maintenance on your multi use games area (MUGA), this article will provide useful advice on reactive maintenance so you can decide which form of action will best suit your requirements.


What is reactive maintenance?

As opposed to proactive maintenance which puts preventative measures in place before any damage occurs, as the name suggests reactive repair maintenance fixes damage which has already been done to the surface. There are several reasons why a MUGA may suffer from problems, including:

  • Overuse
  • Vandalism
  • Lack of planning or a suitable proactive care programme

Damage to the surface will negatively impact the playing quality, so it’s important to fix any problems as quickly as possible to encourage good performance and motivate players.


Why is reactive maintenance important?

As soon as you notice any signs of damage to your sports surface, you must enlist the help of a professional to carry out reactive maintenance so your court is restored back to top playing condition as soon as possible. The longer problems are left unaddressed, the more chance there is of the damage escalating into a larger, more costly issue.


Types of reactive maintenance

To ensure your multi use games surface meets the relevant requirements in terms of performance and safety, reactive MUGA maintenance is available in many forms, such as:

  • Seam and joint repairs if the surface has ripped
  • Surface de-compaction and infill cleaning/top up
  • Reline marking
  • Repainting
  • New anti-slip coatings
  • Rejuvenation and renovation


Unfortunately, the extent of the problem, cost of repairs and type of maintenance required cannot be predicted. Therefore, we recommend regular inspections of the surface and scheduled proactive MUGA maintenance should be carried out to help look after the condition of the court and identify any damage before it worsens.
