In consideration of being allowed to participate in SERV’s pickleball activities, events and being present on SERV’s property and facilities, I acknowledge, appreciate and agree to the following:
- I am aware of the inherent risks associated with participation in athletic activities and sports, including pickleball. I am aware there is a significant risk of injury from the activities involved in SERV’s facilities and playing pickleball, including the potential for serious injuries, permanent paralysis and even death. I acknowledge that while particular skills, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury and death does exist.

- I agree to comply with all rules and regulations set by SERV for participation. In addition, I will inspect all property, equipment, pickleball courts and other premises that I utilize at SERV and will make sure all are safe and in proper working order before I utilize the same. I agree that if I observe any hazard during my presence or participation, I will immediately stop all activities and bring the hazard to the attention of SERV immediately and refuse to participate further until such hazard is eliminated.
- I represent that I am in good physical condition with no underlying health condition or risks associated with strenuous physical activity. I agree that if I experience any physical stress or pain or medical condition (including but not limited to cardiovascular or muscular discomfort or pain, disorientation, shortness of breath, headaches, generalized pain etc.) I will immediately stop my activity at SERV and immediately seek medical attention.
