ESMBA Insurance Scheme

Insurance for ESMBA affiliated Clubs, Leagues and Counties



In order to help you access wide-ranging, yet competitively-priced Civil (including Public/Products) Liability and bowls equipment and/or trailer insurance for your short mat bowls club; we’ve teamed up with bowls insurance specialist, Sutton Winson.
Sutton Winson has negotiated a number of enhancements with insurer, Allianz, in addition to the usual public and product liability, equipment and trailer cover included within most policies. 
For example, there’s ‘member to member’ cover and financial protection against professional liability, abuse defence and libel & slander should the need arise.
A money/assault section is now available to cover club cash and assault on club officers whilst they have cash in their possession. Allianz have also added Employers Liability cover for Club/County officers.

And the restrictions surrounding theft or malicious damage to equipment have been removed so it’s no longer necessary for premises to have British Standard locks or padlocks.
It’s no surprise to find Sutton Winson has been supporting the bowling community with insurance provision, sponsorship and targeted donations for nearly 30 years.  It’s with this experience and knowledge that we have formed this partnership, so we can now offer these policy benefits to ESMBA members.

Despite offering more, the insurance cost for your short mat club is £35 for Civil Liability and £15.00 per £1,000 of equipment and/or trailer cover, £9.00 per £300 Cash Cover. 


The master policy runs from 1st March to 28th February.  If cover is taken out after 1st March, the full annual premium is payable and it will run up to 28th February
