Tolworth Girls’ School MUGA

Full sized polymeric pitch for athletics, hockey, netball and general sport use.  Floodlighting and access control for school and external community use.

The new pitch was part of a phased development that included refurbishment and upgrading of existing grass pitches, new athletics track, long jump, shot-put/discus areas and rounders pitches.

Guildford County School MUGA

The most recent phase of a £15million masterplan for this town centre school is the demolition of the existing sports hall and the construction of a new sports hall, associated sports and changing facilities, new flood lit MUGA and external landscaping works.

The MUGA has a sand dressed artificial grass surface for football, hockey and tennis and has a central divider net to allow lunchtime clubs to run alongside general play.

Careful design and a sensitive approach enabled us to help the school achieve planning permission for the new facilities, including floodlighting and new car parking, on a tight site closely surrounded by residential properties.

St Thomas of Canterbury School MUGA

Polymeric surface for PE and general play at a large primary school – the space is used intensively throughout the day as well as for after school clubs and school events.

Our range of experience includes artificial grass pitches for football, tennis and rugby, hard surface MUGAs for athletics, hockey and general play, natural outdoor pitches and hard courts for basketball, netball and tennis.

Our understanding of the pros and cons of different surfaces, along with the technicalities of Sport England requirements means that we can advise at every stage of a project, from feasibility studies to detailed consideration of goal recesses, floodlighting, storage and fencing.

Lytle Associates have a proven track record in providing a range of sports facilities for schools, often forming part of an overall educational solution.
