In this day and age of ‘sue first, ask questions afterwards’, it's so much better to be safe than sorry, no matter what the situation.
Whether it's to protect you against a claim by a club member, or a member of the public who suffers an injury on your premises or any other premises linked to your club... or if you employ staff who decide to start an employment dispute... or if any of your sports equipment is stolen, we can arrange the most suitable sports club insurance cover for you.
This way you've got peace of mind knowing your club, your staff and volunteers, your members, your premises, your sports equipment and your business as a whole have the best and most suitable financial protection available.
Basic cover for sports clubs and facilities should definitely include Employers' Liability insurance (it's a legal requirement), Public Liability insurance (not a legal requirement, but definitely essential!) and cover for Grounds and Buildings, Sports Ground and Club Contents, and Commercial Legal Expenses. We can arrange cover in the form of a single policy to take care of all of those aspects - and more - for you and your club.
Employers liability insurance provides cover for employees, volunteers and committee members, with standard coverage at £10 million. So should an employee or volunteer fall ill or suffer an injury as a result of working for your club and claim compensation, you're covered.
Public liability insurance covers the cost of legal fees, legal action and compensation claims made against your sports club if a third party is injured, whether or not they're using your sports equipment, or if their property suffers damage while at your sports club. Standard coverage for injury or third-party property damage can run between £1 – 10 million, which is typically more than enough to cover compensation payments.
Directors' and officers' liability insurance covers the cost of third-party compensation claims made against them and their spouses personally by employees, investors, shareholders, associations or other third parties.
Buildings cover is pretty much essential if your club leases or owns its grounds, buildings and/or sports facility.
Playing surface cover protects pitches, courts and other playing surfaces from accidental damage, as well as deliberate vandalism.
Sports fixtures and fittings cover provides protection against damage and theft of specialist equipment such as floodlights, goal posts and cricket nets. It's separate from the sports equipment cover, which looks after equipment such as rowing machines, weights and exercise bikes.
Groundsman's plant and machinery cover protects against damage and theft of equipment stored on the premises to be used to keep the grounds in optimal condition - from basic hand tools to ride-on mowers.
General contents cover protects the club building or office, together with the contents of the club's shop, excluding items for sale there.
Stock cover is required if the club sells equipment and other kinds of merchandise such as food or drink (except alcohol).
Stock of alcohol cover is required separately from stock cover if the club sells alcohol.
Money cover insures cash on the premises during daytime and kept in a locked safe overnight.
This type of insurance policy covers the cost of legal fees, legal costs and/or representation arising from serious legal or employment disputes such as an employment tribunal, or a dispute over a commercial contract.
It may be that you feel your club insurance plans don't include many of the above (but don't forget employers' liability insurance is very much a legal requirement), so rest assured we won't try and talk you into anything we know you won't need. But then again, there's a lot more cover you can choose from.
Other types of cover can include insurance policies for:
And of course, there's travel insurance for club members to consider when it comes to those away fixtures.
