What is a MUGA playground?

MUGA playground equipment is a fantastic way to bring a versatile fun into your playground. Children can use your MUGA for a wide range of different games and it’ll keep them entertained for hours.

But what are MUGAs?

MUGA stands for multi-use game area. In one simple playground structure, you can give children the tools they need to play games like football, cricket, netball, handball, and basketball. Different goals and goal markings are all clearly defined on a MUGA to make it simple to play all your favourite sports.

What are the benefits of a MUGA playground?

There are lots of reasons to bring in multi-use games areas into your playground. You get incredible cost savings, as you’re able to provide multiple games with just one simple piece of equipment. But, there’s so much more on offer than fantastic savings.

These pieces of equipment are hard wearing and long lasting, so you’ll get many years of use out of them, and they’re really easy to maintain. Installation is also relatively swift, reducing the disruption to your school or community.

A simple MUGA playground encourages children to get active. During playtime, they can challenge friends to their favourite games and burn off some energy. This helps them concentrate better in school, as well as allows them to develop their strength and coordination.

Team games are fantastic for developing social skills and problem solving abilities too. During a game, children must work together to defeat the other team and create their social bonds. Win or lose, they’ll gain valuable social skills during play that they’ll use for the rest of their lives.

Communities, as well as schools, massively benefit through the use of MUGAs. They give a structured social place for children and teens to use, away from the isolation of social media on online games.

You might even think about renting out the use of your MUGA to local teams, holiday clubs, and evening exercise classes. There’s no limit to the possibilities of a MUGA playground.
