Whatever stage you are at, forging a career in sport is challenging. For anyone taking part in professional sports, the risk from injury is ever-present, especially on the practice ground. Such concerns bring the need to protect your income and future earnings into sharp focus.

Professional clubs are also concerned about their on-pitch performance if they should be without influential players for extended periods due to injury or illness. This is becoming even more important as the money involved in sports increases.

The rapid growth in popularity of women’s sport has been incredible, so now is the time to consider how insurance can help mitigate the risks faced by female athletes.

Insurance for Women in Sport policy benefits

Core benefits

The policy is an enhanced personal accident insurance and covers the accidental death of, or severe injury to, the insured party. This would then activate benefits to replace income according to the policy terms.

WTW can arrange worldwide sport personal accident insurance tailor-made to protect individual athletes and sporting teams providing peace of mind should the unfortunate happen.

Our personal accident cover protects individuals in the event of a loss of personal income because of an accident or mental illness, and the benefits consider the genetic differences females may endure whilst playing in their sport.
