Our Sport & Leisure risk appetite

Operating a sports or leisure venue comes with a number of risks. Every club has a responsibility for the health and safety of people who work, visit, or are affected by the club’s activities. This includes players and competitors, volunteers and staff, members and supporters, parents and other visitors, competition support staff, and contractors.

To ensure the people and the property are well protected, clubs need to have a comprehensive insurance policy in place.

Nelson’s Sport & Leisure division provides such cover. Our Sport & Leisure products are available on a commercial combined, property or liability only basis.

We provide cover for Sports & Leisure risks for wide ranging sports and leisure trades. These include:

Angling, archery, athletics, bowls, boxing, basketball, cricket, fencing, football, hockey, netball, rugby, squash, tennis, yoga, arts and crafts centres, bingo halls, bowling alleys, brown sign sites, campsites, caravan and park home sites, casinos, children’s play centres, cinemas, theatres, concert halls, comedy clubs, community centres, dance academies, family fun centres, amusement arcades, fishing venues and lakes, golf clubs including additional activities such as hotels, driving ranges, health and leisure clubs, laser tag, martial arts centres, micro-breweries, model clubs, museum, historical and visitor attractions, personal trainers/sports coaches, photography studios, public halls (concert, masonic, town halls), recording studios, social clubs, scout and guide halls, snooker and pool halls, youth centres.
