Why You Need Storm Cover for Your Cricket Club Equipment
When Storms Dudley, Eunice & Franklin slammed the UK in Mid-February they were the 5th, 6th & 7th named Storms in 2021 – 2022 season.
Eunice also carried an unprecedented two Red warnings meaning that it carried gusts of over 80km per hour and a real threat to property. It was also the first time that the UK had been hit by three named storms in a week.
Since 2015 (when Storms were first named) there has been a total of 48 storms; in the last four years, the storm season has started in September (just as the cricket season is ending) and the last storm has occurred in June, April, August and July respectively, hitting cricket clubs when all their equipment is in the open.
If you do not have storm and weather cover for your equipment in the open, you will be facing damage to practice nets, sightscreens, and covers without recourse to insurance, and will have to pay for the repair / replacement out of your own funds.
Do you have a spare £ 20,000 or more to pay for the damage?
If you do not know whether you have the cover, then read your insurance schedule and summary of cover.
If it is still not clear, then please contact me and I will give you a definitive answer.
The policies that we issue all have full cover for your equipment in the open – why would you want to self-insure weather related risks when cover is available for a few hundred pounds?
Do you have a spare £ 20,000 or more to pay for the damage? Or have you created a separate fund in addition to your insurance costs?
