Are you making a claim after being hurt at a sports club?
If you practise a particular sport, or if you’re hoping to improve your fitness levels, you may be a member of a local sports club. Although there are plenty of gyms in towns and cities around the United Kingdom, many people prefer to get fit playing a particular sport, rather than just working out on cardiovascular or weight machines. Wherever you train you need to be careful you are not the victim of a non fault sports injury in Waltham Forest.
Playing football as part of a team, for example, may be a more fun way to get fit than working out alone at a gym. With numerous amateur football and rugby teams available, it’s likely that there is one based near to you, should you wish to join.
Of course, football and rugby aren’t the only sports available. There are basketball, netball and hockey leagues based all over the country, as well as numerous tennis and golf clubs. In addition to this, there are numerous martial arts schools which over classes for people of all ages and abilities.
If you would like to take up a sport but you don’t want to compete, you could still join a class or club without having to take part in competitive league matches. With hundreds of clubs based in London alone, it’s likely that you will find something of interest to you close to where you live.
A non fault sports injury in Waltham Forest
If you do join a sports club or class, it may be held outside, in a dedicated building or in a hired hall or pitch. Wherever the session is located, it’s essential that the organisers ensure that the right insurance is in place. If the building is regularly hired out to sports clubs it’s likely that it will be in a condition but if it’s run down or damaged in some way, it could be dangerous to play in there or to use it or sports at all. If, for example, you hire indoor tennis courts but the floor is pitted or uneven, you could easily trip or twist your ankle which could result in a painful injury.
