Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs)
A multi-use games area is an artificial sports surface that is suitable for many different sports and activities. MUGAs provide a versatile surface that is not only more cost effective but also uses space more efficiently. A MUGA can be used in most weather conditions, all year round. They can utilise existing drainage or be free draining through the synthetic surface to the constructed base beneath.
We have a variety of different MUGA surfaces to suit your requirements from polymeric rubber to the latest generation of artificial sports grasses. Our range of synthetic MUGA’s are suitable for schools, playgrounds, sports clubs and recreation areas. Using our experience of over 25 years we are able to supply MUGAs to a number of different specifications depending on the required use, customising the area to fit your needs and requirements. We provide a complete service, managing the project from start to finish, and have a dedicated maintenance division that can help you to keep the surface in a good and safe condition. The surfaces available include:
The type of artificial grass used can range from a rubber filled 3G/4G system primarily for football and rugby to a sand dressed dense piled system which can be used for most sports including hockey and tennis. For greater impact absorption and control of ball bounce and roll, our surfaces can have either: an in situ rubber or pre-formed foam shockpad installed underneath the artificial grass system. Lines can be customised to your requirements and inlayed to the system using a variety of coloured artificial grasses. They are durable and do not require painting. For further information on Artificial Grass please visit the main page here.
Polymeric sports rubber flooring is made up of granules of EPDM rubber bound together by a polyurethane binding agent. The top course is a coloured, high traction surface. This type of system is designed for most sports including athletics, tennis, basketball, netball, daily mile tracks, football and omni-sport use.

Multi-sports surfaces are sand dressed, artificial sports grass. They provide an outstanding hard wearing surface with natural playing characteristics, which uses space effectively. Multi-sports surfaces are designed to act as a playground and accommodate most activities and sports. A full 3G/4G pitch is usually not necessary for the level of sport being played on them by most primary school pupils, and it may be unsuitable for some sports where ball bounce, or even ball roll, is important. A multi-sport surface can support any sport, or activity, that can be played on a normal playground, and fully customised to suit your needs.
3G & 4G Sports Surfaces
Third and Fouth generation (3G/4G) sports flooring is a long pile artificial grass, which is rubber filled or sand and rubber filled. This is the ideal surface for sports such as football and rugby, and is designed to take studded foot wear and simulate natural turf. It has a much better impact absorbency than natural grass, reducing the chance of injury. 3G/4G sports surfaces are suitable for full size pitches as well as smaller pitches.
As well as installing sports and play surfaces, SSP has a dedicated maintenance division which cleans, maintains, repairs and rejuvenates synthetic sports surfaces. All surfaces require regular maintenance if they are to maximise their longevity and maintain their intended characteristics which includes the safety of users. Our maintenance division can provide economical annual maintenance packages ranging from an annual service to quarterly, bi-monthly or monthly services.
