The most common MUGA pitch size for play areas are 38m x 18m or 35m x 17m. Despite this, you’re able to request alterations. Our experts can tailor to your needs, whether that’s for a school playground, community centre or garden.
Generally the surfaces work off the dimensions above- regardless, you can have the sport’s use surface to your preference.
Now you’ve gathered information on dimensions, be sure to have an idea of what size MUGA pitch you desire. This is important, because when you talk to a consultant about the possibilities, you’ll have an outline of the length and width or at least approximate dimensions. This offers the consultant the chance to know what he’s working with, plus you will be able to price up your turf more accurately.
We revealed the regular dimensions that many use when installing a sports pitch, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to those measurements.
If it’s a multi-use area then you’ll want to opt for a size that suits all of the sports and also the use that you will need it for. If you want exact sizes that are relative to one particular sport, then it’s best to find out the sizes especially for that sport. But it doesn’t need to be stringent, football often changes pitch sizes. There’s an official range and also smaller pitches for training or 7-aside games. Other sports also change the length and width, it all depends on your preference and what sports you’re hoping to relish.
Facilities should be altered to suit, all the activities and games you’re hoping to host on the astro turf- you will also want to factor in how much space you have available to you.
Contractors can help you with your selection process, talking you through various options and ways in which you can mould the surface to your needs.
We already alluded to the multi use games area size, it all comes down to your personal preference. There are things to consider when making the choice, this includes the sports that the turf will facilitate and how much room is available to you.
If you’re hoping to allow people to enjoy multiple sports all on one surface, then find a happy medium or use the recommended dimensions of 38mx18m. It’s always possible to alter them slightly.
