MUGAs - Multi-Use Games Areas 

Thornton Contracts Ltd have more than 30 years experience in the design, build, installation, maintenance and renovation of Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs). We specialise in synthetic surfaces for MUGAs to be used for sports such as Tennis, Netball, 5-a-side, Hockey or general training.

Our extensive range covers a variety of surfaces which can be used for MUGAs; synthetic grass (sand filled or non sand filled), Bitumen Macadam and Polymeric. All of our surfaces are designed to suit every level of ability and meet all budgets.

Constructing 10-20 MUGAs every year within a wide variety of environments, our multi-sport surfaces have proven particularly popular with both state and independent schools, as can be seen from our project reference list. 

Our in-house UK manufactured synthetic grass has been manufactured at our headquarters based at Altham in Lancashire since 1981, using Polypropylene yarn. Our synthetic grass is manufactured to BS EN ISO 9002:1994 (formerly BS 5750) and all are with approved accreditation.

There are also various options for the surround fence and floodlighting ranging from recreational play through to championship standard. In-situ shock pads are also available.
