St Joseph's Primary School, recently undertook a project to rejuvenate their outdoor play area.

Recognising the need for a safe and top-quality play space, the school turned to Playrite, a brand name synonymous with multi-sport surfaces, to replace the old existing synthetic turf with a new 15mm in situ pad and Playrite's versatile Multi Sports Surface (MUGA).

St Joseph's Primary School faced a challenge with an aging synthetic turf that had seen better days. It was crucial to replace it to ensure pupil safety. The project commenced with the removal of the old surface and pad, making way for a fresh start. The school's decision to install a 15mm in situ pad combined with Playrite's Multi Sports MUGA Surface proved to be a wise one for several reasons.

Playrite's Multi Sports MUGA Surface is renowned for its versatility. It's perfect for various sports and activities, making it an ideal choice for a school play area. Students at St Joseph's Primary School would be able to enjoy playing a variety of sports from football, hockey, and tennis, on the same surface.

One of the key benefits of choosing a Multi Sports MUGA Surface is its ability to withstand heavy use, ensuring its longevity and reducing the need for frequent maintenance. This not only saves the school money but also guarantees a consistent, high-quality playing surface for years to come.

With outdoor surfaces, a primary concern for any school becomes the safety of the users and the level of shock absorption that can be achieved. Playrite's Multi Sports MUGA Surface offers exceptional shock properties and impact protection, minimising the risk of injuries during play.

Chris Pickles, Sales Director for Playrite, discusses why Playrite's Multi Sports MUGA Surface was chosen for St. Joseph's Primary School:

"Playrite's MUGA Surface was a no-brainer for this project. Its reputation for quality and performance in the industry is well-deserved. This surface not only meets the demands of a busy school play area but also offers a range of benefits that set it apart. With a new artificial sports surface that is significantly more durable and versatile, it will serve the school and its students exceptionally well for years to come."

Chris, further commented "We're thrilled to have been part of this project. Our aim with our MUGA surface was to provide a reliable, high-performance solution suitable for all students to stay active and pursue their passions."

St. Joseph's Primary School's dedication to providing a safe and engaging outdoor play area for their students has been effectively realised through Playrite's Multi Sports MUGA Surface installation. The school now boasts a durable, versatile, and low-maintenance sports surface, ensuring the well-being and enjoyment of the students. This project exemplifies the positive impact that high-quality multi-sport surfaces can have on the educational environment, making it a remarkable success.
