Here at Schoolscapes we are so pleased that children of all ages at school are now enjoying top quality sporting facilities. The children we spoke to love that they can now access sports in all weathers, thanks to their MUGAs (Multi-Use Games Area) and 3G Sports Surfacing. They said they felt “sad and frustrated” when muddy and wet conditions stopped their play, but now there’s nothing stopping them from accessing their Multi Ball Wall, Target Panels, Junior/Senior Sports Goal or playing a wide range of team sports. The children particularly love the different Sports Markings, allowing them to play a wide variety of popular games. Its even stimulating their creativity as one child enthused “ I have made up my own sports games using the colourful lines, for me and my friends to play.” Another child exclaimed “I love the Ball Shoot as I have beaten my target 3 times now!” So children are using their exciting, new sports facilities to develop personal goals, competitive skills as well as becoming more resilient, determined and dedicated.
Synthetic Grass is another ideal way we can create safe, maintenance free play or sports areas. It provides a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for a safe surface. It is versatile and comes in a variety of colours and can be used effectively for anything from a simple all-weather flooring, right up to a fully tested safety surface with foam shock pads installed underneath. If you’d like to know more about our extensive range of outdoor safety surfacing, then please contact our friendly team of experts at Schoolscapes. Our post “Outdoor Play Surfacing Made Easy?” also provides a comprehensive guide to the different surfaces that are available and their purposes.

Many schools have already taken advantage of the Premier League Primary Stars free resources, aiming to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
