Spring is upon us, and summer is not far behind. In 2020, an estimated 49.4 million students enrolled in K-12 public schools across the nation enjoyed their summer months outside of the classroom. In 2021, over two-thirds of the American population planned to take vacations between June and August.
As the warmer season approaches, both young and old are planning to make the most of their time off. For many, that means spending their time at recreational facilities either for sport or enjoyment. For those who operate entertainment, leisure, or sports facilities – now is the time to make sure you are protected.
Why Is It Important for Your Facility to Be Protected?
The fact of the matter is: life is unpredictable. Being insured means you are protected from liabilities such as third-party bodily injury and property damage claims against your facility, just to name a few. Depending on which insurance coverage you choose will determine the types of liabilities from which you are protected.
As we always say at ESP Specialty, insurance is the first line of defense against a lawsuit. Avoid unnecessary legal action by insuring your facility today.
What Facility Do You Have?
Facilities that see an uptick in business during the summer months are typically ones that operate outdoors like mini golf, driving ranges, and batting cages. Other places like bowling alleys and arcades are indoor facilities that also see an increase as more individuals have the free time to dedicate to their hobbies and interests.
Rest assured, we know everything there is to know about protecting and insuring your facility for the upcoming summer rush.
Mini Golf Insurance
The beauty of mini golf is that it is an activity that can be enjoyed by individuals and families of all ages and sizes. Accidents can happen, and people are unpredictable. Mini golf course owners have dealt with their fair share of patrons tripping over obstacles, losing their grip on golf clubs, or rogue golf balls missing their intended targets.

Driving Range Insurance
For those individuals who enjoy polishing their swing or simply do not have the time to commit to a full 18-holes, driving ranges are the next best thing. It is important to protect your business with driving range insurance to avoid property damage from inclement weather, third-party bodily injury lawsuits, and much more.

Batting Cage Insurance
Play ball! Whether your batting cage is an indoor or outdoor facility, it is important to note that even with the utmost care, accidents can always happen. Metal and wooden bats are swinging. At times, balls are being launched out of pitching machines as fast as 90mph. In an environment like this, protecting your business with insurance for batting cages is the way to go.

Bowling Alley Insurance
Bowling can trace its roots all the way back to 5200 B.C. in Ancient Egypt. Since then, it is continued to grow in popularity, especially during summer months as a way for families to beat the heat. Bowling alley insurance can protect your facility from accidental falls on bowling lanes, injuries from dropped bowling balls, property damage, and much more.
