Glasgow City Council have announced plans upgrade outdated blaes pitches with multi-use games areas (MUGAs) at 14 primary schools including St Paul’s in Whiteinch and Corpus Christi in Knightswood. Both schools are Cycle Friendly Primary Schools!

The investment is the first phase in a programme which will eventually see all 41 blaes pitches at city primary schools replaced.

Details on when the 14 MUGAs will be available for use by pupils are still being finalised, but work will commence after the start of the new school term in August.

Usually made from a synthetic surface such as artificial grass, macadam and polymeric rubber, MUGAs provide for a range of different sports including football, tennis, hockey, basketball, netball and volleyball.
