21.10.14 Uninsured Clubs Face Huge Compensation Claims Many angling clubs and syndicates don’t carry insurance and could face multi-million pound claims if one of their members, or a member of the public, suffered an injury on club waters. Many other angling clubs are paying far too much for cover which is inadequate to protect the club and its officers. Membership of the Angling Trust now includes insurance automatically with club and syndicate membership. The standard cover includes £5 million public and £10 million employers liability to clubs, including for work parties, maintenance, coaching days and all the angling activities of their members in the UK. This standard cover can be extended to provide £10 million public liability insurance, and other items such as contents, trophies, club houses and boats.
