What is Sports & Leisure Clubs Liability Insurance?

There are three main areas of Liability Risks to a Sports or Leisure Club. These are General (Public/Products Liability, Professional Indemnity and Management Liability.

These are briefly described as follows:
General Liability – is Bodily Injury, Property Damage and Advertising Injury caused to others arising out of the activities of the organisation. Apart from a limit of indemnity (which we recommend at least $20,000,000 cover) which can be purchased from $5,000,000 it also includes:

  • Property in your Physical or Legal Control
  • Temporary protection cover 
  • Principals Indemnity – where the owner or main body is protected by your club’s actions
  • Member to Member Liability on most sports risks

Professional Indemnity – is for a breach of Professional Duty such as making an error or omission which causes a financial loss to another person. It can arise from activities such as Coaching, Supervision of children, failure of systems such as Keno, TAB and Lotto and so on. Look for features such as:

  • Legal and Claim Costs and Expenses 
  • Dishonesty of staff for which you can be liable for
  • Automatic Reinstatement of the limit of indemnity after a claim.
  • Continuous Cover where the policy renewed with the same insurer.
