Whether you have a Bronze, Silver or Gold membership with Rounders England you are protected by the Combined Liability insurance (which includes Public & Products Liability cover) whenever you are taking part in a recognised activity. This policy will cover the cost of defending yourself against a claim if you are held responsible for loss, damage or injury to someone else or their property.
