UQ Tennis Club members are covered by Tennis Australia's Sports Injury Insurance Policy. Marsh Advantage Insurance is the insurance broker for Tennis Australia and is state associations. Tennis Australia's National Insurance programs are provided by Sportscover Australia Pty Ltd.
Cover applies when participating in official and/or sanctioned tennis events. This includes competitions, tournaments, training, performing voluntary work for the Club, attending social functions and travelling to and from such events.
Cover for Club members commences from the date on which the member has been registered with Tennis Queensland by an affiliated club, association or centre.
If an injury occurs, report it immediately to the tennis centre staff and make sure they record the details.
If the injury occurs at the UQ Sport Tennis Centre, also check to see if any Club officials are present and report the details to them. For all injury incidents at the UQ Sport Tennis Centre, a UQ Sport Customer Incident Report Form must be completed. Where an injury occurs in a Fixtures match, the details should also be recorded on the match result card in the appropriate place as Sportscover usually requires a copy of the result card.
This is vital for a successful claim as the claim form includes a declaration to be signed by an official verifying that the injury did occur as claimed. Obviously, the tennis centre operator or Club Secretary cannot make such a declaration if the injury was not reported and documented.
To make a claim, please check the instructions for Group Personal Accident claims on Marsh's Claims page. To obtain a claim form, contact the Sportscover Claims hotline on 1300 134 956 and inform them that you are a Tennis Queensland registered player and require a sporting injury claim form. Alternatively, you can request a form on-line from http://www.sportscover.com/pa_claim_request.asp.
