A Yalp Sutu interactive football wall was installed into an existing multi-use games area (MUGA) at Platt Fields, Manchester. The project was part of a larger scheme being run in conjunction with The Football Association and Sport England, and is the second Yalp Sutu wall to be installed (the first was installed at Lowfield Park in Sheffied).
The projects are designed to provide communities with free access to interactive community play spaces, and to encourage communities to be more active. Within the first 16 days the Sutu was being played for up to 5 hours a day with a total of 20 hours, despite one of the wettest Novembers on record.
About Yalp Sutu
Yalp Sutu is an interactive sports wall powered by a 230V cable. When hit by a ball its 16 panels are activated, stimulating children to be active and outdoors.
Yalp Sutu courts can be added to traditional MUGAs, or used to improve them. The goal is to hit the LED-lit panels in whichever way the games prescribe.
Yalp Sutu contains 10 games which can be activated on the MyYalp portal with unique log-in credentials. Users can also view the real time usage statistics of the games linked to the product though a 3G sim via the portal. MyYalp also allows users to manage volume, time lock, language and game selection.
