We have long understood that well-designed outdoor play areas are vital. The few hours children spend outdoors each week builds social and cognitive skills which help them to thrive. No matter the space available, our team knows how to create a place where children can grow.
Every type of playground feature needs to be designed right and built right. In our eyes, creating a unique playground that's bursting with opportunity includes the capability to do them all. That's why our playground range contains everything from Activity Frames through to educational numeracy & literacy play panels.
A school MUGA is the perfect provision for sports, and Playcubed were thrilled to work with Trinity Academy in Brixton, London, to create this fantastic space. MUGA is an abbreviation for ‘Multi Use Games Area’, which is the name for these dedicated sports areas. In this example, our MegaSport artificial grass was used – a great surface with a tightly knit yarn developed specifically for sports. There are several surfacing options available for your MUGA, and you can find more information on these here.
Coloured linage was installed for football, tennis and netball, meaning the MUGA can be used for multiple sports and after school clubs. This is one of the great benefits of these areas, and we have a dedicated article on it here. The rebound fencing is specifically designed for the purpose, providing true ball rebound and minimising noise due to anti-rattle features. If required, these fences can be fitted with extensions to provide a higher barrier, or even covered over completely with netting to create an enclosed space.
