Players are hereby notified there is a risk in playing pickleball. Please read and understand the statement below and check with your doctor before any physical activity.
RELEASE, PERMISSION, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT
Release: In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way I, for myself, my heirs or assigns, hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Lake Norman Pickleball Association and any and all volunteers who demonstrate, teach, and coach in the Clinic, as well as their officers, employees, ambassadors and agents, for liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injuries, accidents or illnesses (including death) and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in any Club hosted event.
Assumption of Risk: Participation in pickleball at the Clinic carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. The specific risks vary but include 1) minor injuries such as bruises, sprains and dehydration, 2) major injuries such as eye injuries, joint or back injuries, heat stroke, heart attacks, and concussions, and 3) catastrophic injuries such as paralysis and death. I have read the previous paragraphs and I know, understand and appreciate these and other risks that are inherent in playing pickleball. I assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless: I also agree to indemnify and hold harmless any and all volunteer pickleball teachers, coaches, ambassadors and players from any and all claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities, including attorney’s fees brought as a result of my involvement in any and all club hosted activities.
