MUGA Surfacing Inspired by International Sports Events
MUGA surfacing is very important to “grass roots” level sports participation. It is where children and teenagers discover their talent for a sport and a lifelong passion for their activity is formed. For some it is the start of a long journey to international competition and success at the highest levels. For the rest of us it is a place where we can enjoy sports and exercise with friends to keep fit.
2018 is a big year for sports and games. It started with the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast and continues with World Cup football, Wimbledon, and the 2018 European Championships in Berlin and Glasgow featuring 4,500 athletes and 52 nations competing across seven sports. There’s so much inspiration for children and adults to get outside and active on MUGA surfacing!
The Health Benefits of Using MUGA Surfacing
There are many health benefits for people who participate in sports on MUGA surfacing. According to the NHS, regular physical activity can have up to a 35% lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, up to a 50% lower risk of type 2 diabetes, reduces the risk of certain cancers and results in a 30% lower risk of early death. Mental Health Awareness Week during May 2018 focussed on stress and taking part in exercise on MUGA surfacing is also proven to relieve this, lifting low mood, counteracting the symptoms of anxiety, and improving self esteem.
Having MUGA surfacing installed at a school, public park or incorporated into a communal area within a new housing development allows multiple sports and games to be played within a single area. Making it an efficient use of space and cost effective to install. Having places which encourage exercise has the wider benefit of improving health and well being, leading to happier and more productive lives.
