Sportscover Australia chief executive Simon Allatson says: “With offices in London, Sydney, Melbourne and partners worldwide, we have the global reach and experience to provide the right solution for your sports and/or leisure business.

“It is our passion for sport and leisure together with our focus on providing excellent customer service that has enabled Sportscover to grow to become the force in sport and leisure services that it is today.

“If we deliver on our promise to you, then we will have moved closer to the realisation of our vision: to be the company of choice for the sports and leisure market through unrivalled expertise, innovation, partnerships and exceptional customer service.

“The Clubbies Awards are important to us because we understand and recognise the importance of clubs in making sport available to all Australians. Most of our people have been, or are, members of clubs. Sponsoring the awards enables us to acknowledge that, without clubs, we couldn’t play our sport. It also enables us to say ‘thank you’ to all the hard-working Australians who contribute to this country’s great network of sports clubs.

“As well as thanking you for providing us the opportunity and privilege of insuring your club, as chief executive of Sportscover, I extend a personal invitation for you to contact me at any time if you ever have an issue with the service and cover we provide.

“Best of luck to all who enter the Sportscover Clubbies Awards!”

The Confederation of Australian Sport (CAS) was established in 1976 to advance the interests of the Australian sports community and to give the industry a united voice in discussions and negotiations with governments and key stakeholders.

Their aim is to contribute to the development of a society in which the social, economic and health benefits of widespread participation in sport and recreation are recognised and valued.

“Through the promotion of participation in sport and physical activity, CAS aims to improve the health and well-being of individual Australians, and to maximise the sport and leisure industry’s contribution to the Australian economy,” says CAS chief executive Rob Bradley.

In a recent study, CAS reported that sport’s value in dollar terms to the nation was “dramatically underestimated” – an economic contribution of $22 billion every year, which was 17 times the combined federal and state government funding of $1.3 billion. It further stated that the nation’s sport system had a critical role to play in meeting the challenge of lifestyle diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and mental illness.
