accidents, responsibility, classes, damages


The physical concentration of high numbers players on a tennis court during group lessons is a personal liability and health/safety risk factor. The objective of this article is to discuss who is liable, and under what circumstances. Since our readers are from different nationalities, and without making exact reference to concrete legal rules, we will determine the basic principles on the matter which are transferable to any territory, and are included in the Project of a Common Reference Framework for the European Private Law (DCFR) or in the European Law Principles of Liability.
