Gladiator Tennis League Play - Terms & Conditions


A. Player conditions for continued participation


  1. All players are expected to uphold their commitment to the league and the other players in the division by completing all of their assigned matches. Our members' league play is treated seriously and the same commitment is expected from our players.
  2. Players who are unresponsive or unavailable to play can be removed from the season that they registered for, subject to the discretion of the league coordinator.  Signing up and not playing deflates the enthusiasm of other players, and is disrespectful to the other players who have committed to play.  No refund is given when an unavailable or unresponsive player is removed from the league.
  3. The League Coordinator can also disallow any player who has demonstrated a pattern of unresponsiveness or unavailability from joining the league going forward.
  4. Players who exhibit “unsportsmanlike behavior” can be suspended from the league at the discretion of the League Coordinator.  See https://gladiatortennis.com//home/gameday#Unsportsmanlike+Behavior for more details on what constitutes unsportsmanlike behavior, and the protocol followed by the League Coordinator in addressing the situation with the offending player.  No refund is given when a player is removed for unsportsmanlike behavior.
  5. Players who are actively participating in a season of play will receive emails from the League Coordinator that will include alerts about roster changes, match schedule changes, important rules, and score reporting deadlines, to name a few.  This email communication between the League Coordinator and players is essential to the smooth operation of the league.  If a player insists on unsubscribing to these emails, they can be removed from the league.  No refund will be given when a player is removed for this reason.


B. Waiver and Assumption of Risk:


  1. I understand tennis entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The risks include, but are not limited to: Slipping and falling; exhaustion; temperature exposure; collision with or being hit by other tennis players; striking obstructions; equipment failure; adverse weather conditions; serious injury to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and other aspects of the neurological system, vascular and/or musculoskeletal system
  2. I have voluntarily registered to participate in the Gladiator Tennis League. I expressly agree and promise to accept all of the risks existing in this activity, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.
  3. I have consulted with physicians and other medical advisors and, taking into account their advice have made my own determination whether I will engage in tennis.
  4. I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating in Gladiator Tennis, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.
  5. I am solely responsible for evaluating each facility I play at to ensure it meets my standard of safety and playability. I understand by playing the match, I agree to do so at my own risk and release Gladiator Tennis as well as any host facility of any liability for injuries arising from my participation.


C. Covenant not to Sue, Release and Indemnification.


I, for myself and for my heirs, legal representatives, and assigns, in consideration of my participation in Gladiator Tennis, covenant with Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, agents and/or representatives to never institute any suit or action at law or equity against Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives, by any reason of any claim I have now or may hereafter acquire relating to any present or future accidents or injuries occurring to me as a result of my participation in Gladiator Tennis.


I HEREBY EXPRESSLY RELEASE, WAIVE AND DISCHARGE for myself and my heirs, legal representatives, and assigns, Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives, from any and all claims, causes of action or liability for death, personal injury or property damage of any kind or nature whatsoever arising out of or in the course of participating in Gladiator Tennis, even though that liability may arise out of the negligence or carelessness of Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, agents and/or representatives. This release and waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen known or unknown,


I HEREBY AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives from any loss, liability, damage, and/or cost they may incur due to my participation in Gladiator Tennis whether caused by the negligence or carelessness of Gladiator Tennis, its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents and/or representatives.


I have carefully read this participant waiver and assumption of risk agreement and understand it to be a release and waiver of all claims and causes of action for my injury or death or damage to my property that occurs while participating in Gladiator Tennis and it obligates me to indemnify the parties named for any liability for injury or death of any person and damage to property caused due to my participation in Gladiator Tennis.
