Additional Information

The following information is provided without liability and to aid tenderers with the design of the MUGA and car park.

MUGA Considerations:

  • Open to public at all times.
  • We welcome contractors opinion of how other uses may be incorporated into the overall design to maximise investment. For example, street snooker on one of the goal ends.
  • Minimal maintenance costs
  • Minimal upkeep - ie sweep and possible weed treatment

Site locations - the MUGA site is flat, open and easily accessible, it is located away from immediate properties to reduce disturbance to local residents, close to other play facilities, visible from the highway to aid with security, and any build must not increase flood risk to others. Any lighting must consider light pollution to local residents and the surrounding fields and allotments.

The CarPark location is adjacent to the existing tarmac car park, flat, open and accessible. It is located adjacent to an allotment and residential properties. Any build must consider local residents and the rural setting.

MUGA Uses: (The contractor should demonstrate which sports the MUGA will be suitable for)

Basketball - 28m x 15m

Netball - 30m x 15m

Tennis - 23mx8m (full size court) (Mandatory)

Football (5-a-side) - 36mx18m (Mandatory)

Dodgeball - 17mx8m

Volleyball - 18mx9m

Hockey - 36mx18m for practice purposes

MUGA Plan Diagram

A footpath should extend along the full length of one side to provide clean access to the court, safe viewing area and equipment storage for users of the court (ie boot bags, coats, water bottles etc). This path should extend to and join with a clean surface - such as the footpath at the village hall. The entrance should be through the goals to prevent injury - avoiding side entrance points.

MUGA Court & path

The end goals could be imagined to be something as shown below (see picture below), however full height at each end would be better for ball sports, with a lower (approx 3-4ft) fence along either long side of the court in matching materials.
