As a school there are a wide range of targets to hit when it comes physicality and ensuring that every student has access to practice a wide range of different sports and enhance active skills. Developing fundamental movement skills includes balance, locomotor and ball skills. But this needs to be carried out in a safe way for everyone and we think the best way to do it, is through the implementation of a school MUGA.
This takes us to Wicklea Academy in Bristol where we recently constructed a full build school MUGA turning a grass field into a multi-use games facility. 500 square metres of TigerTurf’s Evo Excel artificial turf product was used to provide a soft and less abrasive surface than alternatives. Coupled with trip free edging and a special drainage system, this really is the ultimate school MUGA surface when it comes to safety.

Artificial turf is perfect for a school MUGA. And a school MUGA is perfect to reach the targets of Fundamental Movement Skills for your school. This case study focuses heavily on locomotor and ball skills.

Fundamental Movement Skills and a school MUGA go hand in hand to help schools reach their targets when it comes to exercise, activity and general physical education.
