Sports club insurance quotes

If you run a sports club or society it’s important to think about sports club insurance. That’s because there are a number of risks involved, not least the possibility of accidents and injuries.

Sports club insurance helps protect you if something goes wrong and your club or society gets blamed, covering the cost of legal fees and compensation payments. With Simply Business, it’s quick to get a quote – and easy to buy a policy tailored to your needs.

What type of sports club insurance do I need?

Public liability insurance is an important cover for sports clubs and societies. If a member of the public gets injured or suffers a loss and blames your club, a subsequent claim could be costly. Our public liability insurance can cover you up to £5 million.

And if you have staff, including volunteers, employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement. It covers you if an employee gets ill or injured as a result of working for you.

Sports club insurance FAQs

Do I need public liability insurance for a sports club?

Public liability insurance is an important cover for sports clubs, as it protects you if someone gets injured or suffers a loss. For example, if one of your members or a spectator gets hurt during an event and your club gets blamed, public liability insurance covers the resulting claim.

We're not a registered sports club – can you insure us?

Don’t worry if you’re a small sports club or you’re just starting out and aren’t registered. You can still buy insurance through Simply Business – we cover small charities, social clubs and community groups.

The only type of insurance that’s a legal requirement is employers’ liability insurance, if you have staff (even volunteers). It covers you if an employee gets ill or injured and blames your sports club. But even though it’s not a legal requirement, you should still consider insurance. Claims made against you can be costly.

Will our insurance cover sporting events?

Yes, if a member or a spectator gets injured and your sports club is found to be at fault, public liability insurance can cover the resulting claim. Other covers, like employers’ liability insurance and equipment insurance, will cover events too. Public liability cover for events doesn't usually include cancellation.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
