DISCLAIMER: Neither Harvard University nor Squash Cancer, its founders and leaders are NOT responsible for any injury, including death, to any person participating in Squash Cancer events, including, but not limited to, the annual tournament, social gatherings and athletic events organized by third parties in which Squash Cancer members participate.

I understand that the reaction of the heart, lung and blood vessel system to exercise cannot always be predicted with accuracy. I know and understand there is a risk of certain abnormal changes which may occur during or following exercise, including, but not limited to, abnormalities of blood pressure and heart attacks. Performance of exercises may lead to musculoskeletal strains, pain and/or injury, if adequate warm-up, gradual progression and safety procedures are not followed. I understand that neither Harvard University nor Squash Cancer shall not be liable for any damages arising from personal injuries sustained by me while participating in and during participation of any or all parts of Squash Cancer. I understand and warrant, release and agree that I am in good physical condition and that I have no disabilities, impairments or ailments that would prevent me from engaging in active or passive exercise that could be detrimental or inimical to heart, safety and/or comfort or physical condition while I engage or participate in Squash Cancer. I have had a recent physical check-up and have a medical physician’s permission to engage in aerobic and/or anaerobic activities. I hereby agree to release, discharge and hold harmless Harvard University, Squash Cancer, its founders, and leaders, from all causes, liabilities, damages, claims or demands whatsoever on account of any injury or accident involving myself arising out of my participation in Squash Cancer.
I acknowledge that physical exercise can be dangerous and involve risk of serious injury, paralysis and/or death. I further acknowledge that the location and conditions of Squash Cancer may be inherently dangerous due to the nature of the sport and contact that occasionally occurs with one’s opponents. I understand that I should wear appropriate safety attire and equipment, including, but not limited to, eye goggles and court shoes. I hereby acknowledge and agree to assume responsibility for all the risks, whether identified herein or not, even those risks arising out of negligence of the releasee. My participation is purely voluntary. I assume full responsibility for myself for any bodily injury.
