Reopening of sports clubs puts the right insurance product in the spotlight

As lockdown is gradually being eased throughout Britain, sports clubs and leisure facilities are reopening to members. With sports clubs opening their doors to the public once more, it’s imperative facilities have the right insurance product in place to protect members and staff.

A specialist insurance product with bespoke wording ensures sports venues are suitably covered.
