Liability Waiver

I realize the nature of the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association (SMPA) activities and the equipment used in conjunction with those activities may expose me to hazards or risks that may include minor injuries, broken or sprained limbs, overexertion, or heat exhaustion, along with other, more serious injuries, including hospitalization and death.

In consideration of my participation in SMPA related activities, I hereby accept all risk to my health or property and release the SMPA, its Board of Directors, officers, agents, employees, and independent contractors, from any and all liability to me, my personal representatives, estate, heirs, next of kin and assigns that may result from or occur in any way related to my participation in SMPA activities.

I further agree to hold the SMPA, its officers, directors, agents and employees harmless from any and all claims related to or in any way arising out of my participation in any SMPA activities and agree to indemnify them against all loss including judgments, litigation expenses, attorneys fees and out of pocket expenses.

I have carefully read this agreement and understand it to be a release of all claims and causes of action for injury or death or damage to my property which may occur as a result of participating in any SMPA activities and I further understand that this agreement obligates me to indemnify and hold harmless the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association, its officers, directors, agents, employees and independent contractors of SMPA in connection to any claim for personal injury liability or property damage arising out of, pertaining to, or related to my participation in SMPA activities. I am entering into this agreement freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature. Furthermore, I agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid, the balance, shall remain in full force and effect.

I further understand that this agreement shall be valid in regards to my participation in any and all SMPA related activities. I also acknowledge that I may be required to sign separate and additional release agreements for future SMPA sanctioned tournament events in which I choose to participate.
