ExtraCover Insurance - Cricket Club Insurance

Since 1973 we have operated sports insurance schemes which have been developed continuously with specialist knowledge and expertise

Our dedicated Sports Team understand the needs and requirements of Cricket Clubs, Associations, Boards and Leagues, we are fully aware of the specific needs & requirement of the Amateur Cricketing family within the UK. The ExtraCover policies have been developed over the last 45 years & we will continue to move with the times.

A Comprehensive Policy for Cricket Clubs

Our dedicated Sports Team understand the needs and requirements of Cricket Clubs, Associations, Boards and Leagues, and as the exclusive brokers for the ExtraCover scheme we can tailor make a policy to suit all your Cricketing needs.

Public, Products and Employers' Liability

Under the core cover of Public and Products Liability, you will be insured if any party brings a claim against you for bodily injury or property damage anywhere within the UK occurring during the period of insurance. It automatically includes Employers' Liability, Member to Member Liability, official social functions and other events hosted for the benefit of the club, legal and other costs in connection with the defence of any valid claim.

Our Public Liability cover goes beyond that required for the ECB guidelines for Club Mark accreditation and is fully compliant with the ECB’s All Stars programme

When looking at insurance cover, you need to insure any items for a value to replace or buildings for a rebuild cost. In today’s tough economic climate, many businesses are not prioritising the valuation and risk assessment aspect of their insurance programme, fearful that it may lead to higher premiums.

However, underinsuring your contents or building can have catastrophic consequences and effect how quickly the club can get back on its feet following a loss.

Recent research has shown that 8 out of 10 properties in the UK are underinsured!

In the property market, there is often confusion between the market value of a property and its rebuild cost. Charges for building materials and labour also change regularly and many businesses forget to include the fees for removing debris and clearing the site before a rebuild even starts. Where a business does not get on top of these issues, then its sums insured are unlikely to be accurate.

Underinsurance is also prevalent in the plant and machinery market. The lead times for bespoke machinery are often longer than expected and when plant is coming from overseas, the impact of currency fluctuation also has to be factored into the equation.

We do our best to work closely with each club to make sure that the clubs are properly assessed, and to ensure that valuations are up to date index linking is applied in line with inflation.

In order for the club to consider what sum to insure for we have created two aide memoires, one for your machinery and plant and the other for your pavilion/clubhouse.
