A particular specialist installation from Manchester Road Surfacing is the MUGA pitch – or multi-purpose games area. These versatile games pitches can be used, as the name implies, for a range of sports, such as football, hockey, basketball or netball – even rollerblading! They are the modern developments of the artificial grass pitches of the 1970s and 80s, with all the advantages of new technology. They allow a far greater use of a given space to accommodate the ever-wider range of sports activities seen these days.
The high-tech material of the pitch ensures a soft surface underfoot, allowing the full range of contact sports to take place.
MUGA pitches are seen in schools and colleges, sports clubs, athletics clubs and leisure centres. Manchester Road Surfacing can install the pitches in all locations, whether it be a new installation with associated preparation and groundworks – including drainage and run-off – or the conversion of an existing pitch.
