RTA MEMBER WAIVER
In consideration of being allowed to use the facilities of the Rowayton Tennis Association, Inc. (the “RTA”), including but not limited to the tennis hut, the tennis and pickleball courts, and adjacent areas (together “RTA Facilities”), the member acknowledges, appreciates, and agrees that:
- I understand that there are inherent risks involved in tennis and pickleball, including the risk of serious physical injury, and I fully assume all risks associated with participating in these sports, including but not limited to: variations in the court conditions; the presence of water, or other debris present on or outside the courts; collisions with the court, the equipment, instructors or other players; lack of safety devices or inadequate safety devices; lack of warnings or inadequate warnings; lack of instructions or inadequate instructions.
- I, on behalf of myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, hereby waive, release, discharge, and agree not to enjoin any legal action against the RTA, its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, agents, including any instructors I may pay for lessons or clinics, and other members, (collectively the “Releasees”). Further, I agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Releasees harmless from any and all claims with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property, any liability and expense whether or not arising from the negligence of the Releasees which I may have or which may subsequently accrue to me, relating to, resulting from or arising out of my use of the RTA Facilities, including any injury or damage to my person or property, or to that of any other person or property. This release includes my attendance at any social event or gathering that may be organized, authorized, or paid for by the Releasees, other RTA members, or participation in any clinic, lesson, league or division organized by the Releasees or in which RTA members participate, including but not limited to pre-match or post-match events or gatherings (together “RTA Events”).
- Further, I understand and acknowledge that the use of RTA Facilities and participating in RTA Events by me, my family, and any guests brings an inherent risk of having direct or indirect contact with individuals who have been exposed to and/or diagnosed with one or more communicable diseases, including but not limited to COVID-19 or other medical conditions, diseases, or maladies, and/or any mutation or variation thereof, and that it is impossible to eliminate the risk that I could become infected through contact with or close proximity to an individual with a communicable disease and agree to assume the risks that I, any guest, or family member, may in turn be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 or another disease, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death to myself, my spouse, guests, unborn child, or relatives. I understand and voluntarily accept and assume all of the foregoing risks and agree to hereby waive, release, discharge, and agree not to enjoin any legal action against the Releasees.
- Should I choose to invite a guest to use RTA Facilities or participate in RTA Events or should I include family members in a Family membership, I agree to assume all responsibility for their use of RTA Facilities and participate in RTA Events and will secure their agreement to substantially the same terms and conditions as this release prior to their use of the RTA Facilities or participation in RTA Events.
- I acknowledge that I have read and reviewed the RTA rules and regulations that can be found on the RTA website at www.rowaytontennis.com and are updated from time to time and agree to comply with these guidelines and the terms and conditions for use of the RTA Facilities and participation in RTA Events.
I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO IT, AND AGREE TO IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
