As a registered venue you have a duty of care to all those participating in the sport and visitors. A club must do all it reasonably can to reduce or eliminate loss, damage or injury to others and it may be held legally liable to others if it fails to do so.
Cover has been arranged for LTA registered venues that are members' clubs, however commercial centres and Local Authority venues should arrange their own insurance cover. (See FAQs for further details).
Cover for registered places to play includes:
- Mismanagement of club finances
- Breach of fire safety regulations
- Corporate manslaughter.
