ExtraCover Insurance, the only cricket club insurance product approved and endorsed by the ECB, run by Yorkshire based brokers Marshall Wooldridge, has signed an agreement with Oxfordshire Cricket to be their official insurance partner.
The deal is part of a strategic approach to target cricket clubs through the network of Cricket Boards, who have direct responsibility for the clubs which are affiliated to them.
Oxfordshire Cricket will provide ExtraCover Insurance with a series of measures through logo placement, email communications, face to face meetings and direct promotions to ensure that each of its clubs has access to professional insurance advice as well as being able to speak with the ExtraCover Insurance team to find the right level of insurance cover for their clubs.
Mark Dearden of ExtraCover Insurance met with Owen Lewis, Business Manager of Oxfordshire Cricket to put pen to paper on the agreement.
“We’ve been evaluating our traditional marketing on how we target cricket clubs, and we identified the need to develop closer links with the Cricket Board offices, as they have direct responsibility for all the cricket clubs that affiliate to them, and communicating to clubs about being insured to an adequate level is just one of their many roles.
Our agreement with Oxfordshire Cricket, is the beginning of what we hope will be a very productive relationship between us and the 100+ clubs linked to them.
We aim to meet with as many clubs as we can at Oxfordshire Cricket seminars and events, to get to know them better and to show them that we’re on their side when it comes to providing best advice and recommending the correct levels of insurance cover for their clubs.
We look forward to working closely with Oxfordshire Cricket on this partnership and feel confident that we can provide a service to each and every one of their member clubs.”
“Oxfordshire Cricket are delighted to be able to work closely with Marshall Wooldridge to help protect cricket clubs in our county. Not only is ExtraCover Insurance the only policy endorsed by the ECB, Marshall Wooldridge have a proven record in Oxfordshire of delivering an excellent service and fully understanding the challenges that clubs and their volunteers face.
They already insure our board, leagues and a large proportion of clubs, so it is fantastic to be able to partner a company with a great reputation and a service which our network trusts.
I can personally endorse Marshall Wooldridge after they saved my own club from financial loss a more than one occasion after storms damaged our mobile batting cage and sight screens.
We will be contacting clubs through our channels to remind them of the importance of the correct level of insurance, while Marshall Wooldridge will offer their expertise to ensure that clubs and their officers do not suffer any unnecessary financial losses.”
