The Policy wording reproduced below is practically identical year upon year, but in 2020. Corona Virus may have caused significant changes. As far as Chess Club is aware, this type of renewed policy still applies in most official circumstances but is unlikely to apply in informal situations or settings.

 The wording has been redacted in part to protect personal information.

Longbridge Chess Club members can now see what Insurance cover is actually taken out on their behalf!

Longbridge Chess Club does not guarantee indemnity cover will not be denied – this is merely an estimation of what the ECF based bulk Insurance Policy covers and is simply reprinted here purely as a courtesy to provide as much information as is possible.

If you have a problem; you should at least know you can speak to us – and we will do our level best to advise and assist if any claim is made against you; or if a claim is to be made on your behalf – but we cannot guarantee a successful outcome. We are not lawyers, merely club officials interpreting information – we cannot be held responsible if a claim is denied – we have done everything in our power that is reasonable to expect to protect our Longbridge Chess Club.

Please note Social Club Insurance Policies are likely to be in place – over which we have no control whatsoever, and cannot guarantee any claim relating to Social Club insurance.  Please be careful to tread carefully when visiting the Social Club.
