Affiliated Club competitions

We have been advised by our insurers, that we should now be sanctioning competitions run by our affiliated clubs. This is so that should there be any need of a claim, we can confirm that we have been notified of the competition.

If you are running an invitational/ inter-club competition, please let us know we will then sanction the event add the details to our calendar to help advertise it for you.


IAIGC Competitions

For many years now, at IGA we have extended our included insurance to cover the USAIGC/IAIGC competitions taking place here in the UK.

We have done this despite IGA not being recognised as an international body for them. As USAIGC/IAIGC do not cover their own events in the UK and we wanted to ensure that our affiliated competitors are covered while taking part.

As we have been advised by our insurers, that we must be sanctioning events, we are unable to do this for events run under the banner of other organisations, especially when no recognition/partnership exists.

We have attempted to contact USAIGC/IAIGC to discuss how we may be able to move forward together and to ensure that competitors are covered, unfortunately we have had no success.

It is with regret that from the start of the 22/23 membership year, we will no longer be able to extend our coverage to include events being run on behalf of other organisations.              

We do hope to be able to open a dialogue with USAIGC/IAIGC where we can possibly be recognised as an international body for them, and hopefully be able to reinstate coverage for their events.

We fully understand that this will be disappointing to those who compete in their competitions, but we hope you understand why we are unable to extend coverage to events which are not part of our organisation.
