REASONS FOR EXTRACOVER INSURANCE #2
Protect your players and your personnel.
Should someone suffer an injury while playing cricket or doing volunteer work – such as your groundsman or a handyman making repairs to the pavilion – personal accident cover ensures that your club member is protected.
Some of the biggest claims in the past have come from an umpire being hit by a ball (modern bats and batting styles have done nothing to reduce the likelihood of this).
These things can happen – make sure your club is prepared.
Don’t forget you can buy cover for a player’s income if they’re injured whilst playing and are rendered unable to work. The maximum available is £250 per week; should help with the mortgage!
