MUGA – Multi Use Games Area

Freshwater MUGA has had a comprehensive refurbishment totalling £22,500. The initiative was a collaborative effort, fuelled by the dedication of the Isle of Wight Basketball Club, local players, councillors, and a host of generous contributors. Through crowdfunding initiatives, support from the Isle of Wight Sports Foundation, Freshwater Parish Council, Tesco’s Community Fund, and Basketball England, the project garnered the necessary resources to breathe new life into the court.

The rejuvenation of the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) at Freshwater’s Moa Place has sparked a wave of enthusiasm among the local community, bringing a renewed energy to the sport of basketball on the Isle of Wight.

The refurbished court stands as a testament to the power of community spirit and collaboration. The installation of a new playing surface, adorned with the colours of the Isle of Wight flag, alongside full-sized backboards, rings, and fencing repairs, has revitalised the space, making it conducive to both casual games and organized competitions.

Through initiatives like youth projects aimed at combating vandalism and collaborations with academic institutions to explore innovative court designs, the momentum generated by the refurbishment project continues to propel the growth of basketball culture on the Isle of Wight.

In essence, the refurbishment of the MUGA at Freshwater’s Moa Place transcends the realm of sports infrastructure—it embodies the transformative potential of collective action, community engagement, and a shared commitment to fostering active, vibrant communities.
