For Gymnasts

Gymnast members of British Gymnastics receive the benefit of a Legal Liability and Personal Accident insurance. These will cover you whilst participating in our sport.

What is Legal Liability insurance?

This is a type of insurance which provides indemnity against legal liability, including legal defence costs and damages, incurred through your actual or alleged injury to other people or damage to other people’s property.

Cover is provided up to a limit of indemnity of £15m. It will even protect you worldwide if you travel abroad on a trip agreed and approved by British Gymnastics.

What is Personal Accident insurance?

Personal Accident insurance provides a fixed benefit payment if you sustain a specific injury whilst taking part in a recognised gymnastic activity, in a recognised environment, anywhere in the world.

The Personal Accident insurance is a 'non-fault' benefit which means insured members will receive the appropriate payment regardless of the cause of the accident, with no need to resort to litigation or prove negligence first.
