ExtraCover - Cricket Club Insurance

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

Our dedicated workforce understands the needs and requirements of Cricket Clubs, Associations, Boards and Leagues, and as such are the exclusive brokers for the ExtraCover Insurance scheme which is the only insurance policy supported and endorsed by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

We also have facilities to insure Umpires Associations against their risks and liabilities.

A Comprehensive Policy for Cricket Clubs

Marshall Wooldridge, together with Allianz and Zurich, have created the most comprehensive policy for Cricket Clubs, Associations, Boards, Leagues and Umpires. The policy wording goes far wider than any others on the market with a premium that remains competitive.

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, bonfire and firework displays 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.

In the unfortunate event that you need to make a claim on your policy, our claims specialists will take a proactive role in advising and arranging quick settlement of the simplest to the most complicated of claims. You will be provided a dedicated Claims Handler who will assist you throughout the period of the claim, and Marshall Wooldridge can also play a major role in minimising potential losses and enable businesses to resume trading with minimum disruption.

When contacting us, please provide as much detail of the claim as possible, to include contact details of the key people involved and any documents relevant to the claim.

For any liability claim that has been brought against the club you must notify us as soon as possible. Any correspondence from the Third Party should be passed to the Insurers to respond to, rather than the club.

If the claim involves any criminal damage you must report the policy as soon as you are able and provide the crime reference number. Any photographs of the damage caused would also provide supporting evidence.

  • Marshall Wooldridge has acted as our broker for the last 20 years that I have been involved with our club insurance and the service has always been exemplary. In that time we have had to make 3 or 4 claims and the response from their claims department has proved to be speedy and efficient. Most importantly the renewal procedure has always been hassle free and every effort is made to save the end user as much time as possible.
