So often, Councils invest large sums of public money in Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) in the belief they will appeal to all teenage users… but what about the teens who aren’t interested in playing Football or Basketball? Isn’t it time to think of better ways to give all teens – male and female – a relevant space to play, exercise and hang out?

Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) offer just two activities: Football and Basketball.

Research by Make Space for Girls has shown that teenage girls are often overlooked in play provision with equipment tending to favour boys and the activities they prefer. The good news is that Proludic has a long history of creating open spaces which cater for everyone.

Since 2005 we have been consulting with girls, developing innovative products and designing inclusive recreational areas.


For more than 15 years, Proludic has been challenging designs for open spaces to ensure they include engaging and inclusive features to benefit everyone. As a result, Proludic pioneered the MUSA (Multi-Use Sports Area) concept.


Proludic has utilised our extensive experience in playground design and portfolio of over 1,200 products, to design play areas and open spaces which cater to the needs of both girls and boys. Our MUSA Concept has brought designs like this…


This means that for the same budget, a Multi-Use Social Area (MUSA) can offer up to twenty different activities and cater to a wider range of ages, genders, abilities and interests. View the case studies below for more design examples:
