Hunston Parish Council wanted a sports and outdoor gym facility that would help combat anti-social behaviour that was a recurrent issue on a MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area) that previously occupied the space. Proludic’s solution was to bring together a variety of sports (in the form of a MUSA – Multi-Use Sports Area) on a single tarmac pad, with thermographic ground markings to enhance the play zones and improve exercise value. The result is a colourful and inviting outdoor gym space where 60+ users of different ages and abilities can exercise alongside one another.
In addition to football and basketball, users can choose from over 20 different activities, including netball, trampolining, table tennis, dance, pilates, and cricket. The MUSA thereby offers far more appeal than a standard MUGA. The layout is designed to be open with as few visual barriers as possible. By bringing together a wide range of activities in a single space, Hunston playing field encourages different age groups to exercise together. This reduces the likelihood of anti-social behaviour and provides a greater sense of shared responsibility and ownership to its users.
I am delighted to have been involved in this project. This MUSA offers a wide range of equipment which provides many opportunities for members of the community to come together and engage in regular sport and fitness. It has something for everyone and it looks great!Tim Bird, Proludic Area Manager
