    Compensation for hotel tennis court injuries


    Hotels have many facilities that guests can use while staying there. For example there could be an on-site gym, a swimming pool or even a tennis court. These are all very popular and if the tennis court is outside it gives you a chance to get some fresh air as well as play a game or two of this popular sport.

    Hotel tennis court injuries are very rare and most injuries that do occur tend to result from a lack of experience or fitness on the part of the guest. However, there are times when people end up suffering an injury because the state of the court is not in good condition. If negligence is found to have caused an injury there could be a claim to be made for compensation.

    Examples of hotel tennis court injuries

    The surface of the court must be in good condition with no problems that could potentially cause an accident to happen. For example the surface should not be crumbling or uneven, therefore causing a potential hazard. The area surrounding the court should also be in good condition because otherwise you might end up tripping or falling over a hazard nearby. If a drain runs alongside the edge of the court it should be covered and flat, rather than being open or raised in some way.

    Accident Advice Helpline has come across individuals who have unfortunately been injured while playing tennis on holiday or while staying in hotels. While accidents of this kind are exceptionally rare they can happen and if they do they can leave the injured person in quite a lot of pain.

    How long do injuries take to recover from?

    You just never know. There could potentially be problems that might last for some time. Broken bones obviously take time to heal but there are also potential issues that could occur if tendons or ligaments are stretched or sprained.
