What are Multi-Court Playground Markings?
Multi-court playground markings are where we combine various sports courts into one area. This allows schools to maximise the available space by having different types of courts marked out in the same space. MUGA (multi-use games areas) would also be another way to describe these mutli-courts.
An example of such would be the image above which shows our multi court two playground markings with a netball court, in yellow, with three small 5 a side football pitches in white. This allows schools to offer a multitude of sports without requiring vast expanses of playground space.
We can design and install any courts to fit within the available space on the playground allowing you to efficiently utilise limited space to accommodate activities such as basketball, tennis, and football all in one bespoke court.
Benefits of Multi-Court Playground Markings
Versatility and Multi-Use
Our multi-court playground markings are incredibly versatile, allowing a seamless transition between a wide array of sports such as exercise tracks, basketball, tennis, netball and football — all on a single surface. This promotes higher levels of student engagement, as children are more likely to find an activity that piques their interest.
Properly designed markings can guide students during play, reducing the chances of accidents and collisions as the sports courts are in a designated area. They also come with anti slip properties. Additionally, these multi-purpose courts are easier to supervise, enhancing the safety of your students while they enjoy a range of physical activities in an area which is specifically for high energy team sports.
Enhancing Physical Education Classes
Multi-court playground markings take physical education to the next level. P.E. teachers have more options and flexibility in instructing different sports and exercises, thanks to the various markings available all in one designated area.
Types of Multi-Court Playground Markings
All of the following courts can be installed onto your playground within the same area.
These markings consist of free-throw lines, three-point lines, and centre circles, providing a complete basketball experience.
Featuring baselines and service boxes, tennis court markings are straightforward but crucial for the game.
The football enthusiasts will appreciate the detailed markings, including goal areas and centre circles.
These courts come with shooting circles and transverse lines, making the game more engaging and fun
A superb way of providing a fun playground marking which promotes physical activity. Take a look at some more examples here of our activity trails ( exercise tracks ).
What Materials do we use for Multi Court Playground Markings?
For over a decade, we have been using thermoplastic playground markings, for all our multi court playground markings we install.
What are Thermoplastic Playground Markings?
Thermoplastic playground markings are durable and vibrant plastic material with slip resistant proerties. The material is UV-resistant, ensuring that the designs maintain their brightness over time, even in direct sunlight. Moreover, thermoplastic markings are slip-resistant and exceptionally hard-wearing, capable of withstanding heavy use without fading or wearing away. This makes them both a safe and cost-effective solution, as they require minimal maintenance and have a long lifespan. See our history on thermoplastic playground markings here.
