The LTA Liability Protection Scheme covers places to play, members, volunteers and paid employees who have a claim made against them for any wrongful act or omission which causes injury, property damage or financial loss to someone else. The cover incorporates Public Liability, Professional Indemnity, Employers' Liability and Directors & Officers Liability insurance.
This scheme is centrally funded and provided on behalf of tennis venues registered with the LTA via their county association.
NB. Cover is included for tennis venues that are predominantly for members. Commercial organisations and local authority owned and operated venues are required to make their own insurance arrangements as cover is not included within the LTA insurances.
There are a number of centrally funded policies arranged for tennis venues registered to the LTA.
Public Liability and Professional Indemnity cover are arranged with Hiscox Insurance. These provide cover for claims made against the tennis venue that result from someone suffering an injury, damage to their property or a financial loss as a result of some failure on behalf of the place to play or its employees. It provides protection for a wide range of activities, from training and tournaments to social and fundraising events.
Hiscox Insurance also provides Employers’ Liability insurance. This protects the place to play against claims made by employees who are injured in the course of their employment. This cover may also apply to volunteers working on behalf of the tennis venue.
The Directors’ and Officers’ Policy which covers volunteers or paid employees who have a claim made against them for any wrongful act or omission that they commit while acting in the capacity of director or officer (including committee members) of their place to play or association.
The Public Liability, Professional Indemnity and Director's & Officers' policies are written on a ‘claims made’ basis. This means that the policy which responds is the one that is in place when a claim is actually made, not the one in place when the incident occurred.
It is a condition of all the insurance policies that under no circumstances should any offer or promise be made or responsibility for any injury or damage accepted by, or on behalf of, an insured person.
This is only a summary of the insurance cover and the full master policy documents are available from our broker, Perkins Slade Limited and you can read more on the policy at the LTA Insurance Centre.

Some LTA registered places to play are multi-sport venues. The Liability Insurance Policies will operate for these additional activities while at your home venue, unless there is a more specific cover in place elsewhere. However, insurers will not accept the following sports activities:
Football, hockey, cricket, clay pigeon shooting, rugby, martial arts (such as karate, judo, kick-boxing, jujitsu and others), rowing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, scuba diving, horse riding, any airborne sports, rock climbing, abseiling, bungee-jumping, motor sport, potholing.
Should you be in any doubt as to the cover provided for your multi-sport venue please contact our insurance broker, Perkins Slade Limited on 0121 698 8050/8150 or email email@example.com.
Your tennis venue's property and contents are not covered by the LTA’s policies and so you will need to take out an additional policy to cover these.
Our insurance broker Perkins Slade Limited can provide bespoke cover that will be specially designed to meet the needs of your tennis venue or sports clubs.
The policy can protect a place to play's property, whatever its age or construction, equipment owned by your tennis venue, from rollers to rackets, the premises and contents, from cups to computers, and all surfaces, from Astroturf courts to the meeting room carpet.

How to complete an online risk assessment form
Insurance cover is included for venues which predominantly have members. Commercial organisations and local authority owned and operated venues are required to make their own insurance arrangements as cover is not included within the LTA insurances.
For venues eligible for the comprehensive insurance package, we require evidence of an annual risk assessment. To help with this requirement, we have set up an online risk assessment tool, which is quick and easy to use and in addition meets the Clubmark ‘risk assessment’ criteria.
