Insurance is a topic that is often raised very early in a conversation about this sport. No organisation that performs or trains in public can do so without Public Liability insurance at the very least to cover possible unintentional injury or damage to individuals or property. Battle Heritage are covered for this up to a value of £5 million through a company who have been given explicit descriptions of the sport, shows and competitions we take part in.
We have also located a personal insurance coverage that protects our members through Protectivity Insurance who have also had in-depth discussions about our sport and all it involves. To take advantage of this cover, please follow the above link and request a quotation using the sport “Medieval Combat with Steel Weapons”.
This coverage includes personal injury, personal liability, baggage and personal effects, sports equipment loss in transit that is not normally covered by the transport company, legal expenses and more. We are grateful that they have extended their coverage to us, our members and anyone else who wishes to participate with us. This coverage can be purchased for a single day, weekend or annual coverage at sliding scales that are suitable for all incomes.
