Our Bowls Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst playing bowls abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for bowls, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst playing bowls in the UK, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

What makes our policy different?

Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover bowls as standard and even if they do, there will likely be exclusions for championships or competitive matches, making a specialist policy necessary in these cases.

If you are heading overseas to play bowls, our Sports Travel Insurance will not only safeguard you financially against the usual travel incidents, but also cover you for participating in your declared sport.

For those rolling bowls within the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance is your better call, offering benefits such as personal accident, income protection and personal liability insurance.

Why do you need Bowls Insurance?

Bowls or lawn bowls is considered safer than most other sports. Even so, at SportsCover Direct we still recommend following safety precautions and taking out adequate insurance whilst participating in the sport.

Bowls is generally classified a low risk sport, however minor injuries and traumas are still possible.

Back problems can be caused by bending down to pick up bowls although most traumas of this nature occur by aggravating old injuries. The most common ones include minor aggravation by receptive stress of soft tissue structures; either from previous strains trips or falls.

Frequently Asked Questions
