Intending to be legally bound, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, and administrators, waive and release any and all rights and claims and damages I may incur against San Carlos Tennis Club and all of its officers, directors, members, volunteer workers, sponsors and producers for any and all injuries that may be suffered by myself or any individual en route to or from and during events. I am physically fit and sufficiently trained for competition. I also hereby give my unconditional permission for pictures to be taken of me in association with any SCTC activity, and grant an unconditional release for such pictures to be utilized in SCTC's newsletter, website or other communications without further review, permission or consideration.

I additionally agree to play tennis as a SCTC member with integrity and sportsmanlike conduct at all times.  I have read and understand the rules of sportsmanlike conduct on the USTA code of conduct:

I understand that the purpose of the San Carlos tennis club (SCTC) shall be to promote tennis and related activities within the limits of San Carlos and adjacent communities, by offering and promoting competitive and social tennis play for players of all levels and ages. As a SCTC member, I agree to play tennis and behave at all club events with this purpose in mind at all times.  Opponents and other club members should be treated with respect and courtesy, on and off court.

Sportsmanlike conduct defines character. 

The SCTC believes in the core values of USTA including: integrity, inclusiveness, excellence, commitment, teamwork and accountability. At the forefront of these values, I agree to play competitive and recreational tennis as a SCTC member with integrity at all times promoting tennis as a sport and representing the purpose of SCTC and the USTA values during competitive and recreational play, off court, and at all club events.
