Many people enjoy tennis, particularly as it seems like a very summer-orientated sport, at least in the UK. We enjoy the grass court season over here, with the jewel in the crown being Wimbledon of course.
However there are many other tournaments around the country as well, so you have a chance to see both grass court tennis and indoor tennis at various arenas at different times of the year.
Very few venues will have injured tennis spectators who are hurt while attending an event to watch the game. However there might be the potential for things to occasionally go wrong if due care and attention is not taken by those who are in a position to make the courts and facilities safe to use.
How might people be injured at events like these?
It is uncommon to have injured tennis spectators at a match of any kind. However there is the potential for this to occur if appropriate health and safety procedures are not in place. For example the premises should be kept clean and free from obstructions or hazards.
There should be a proper risk assessment in place to ensure this is the case so no one will be in any potential danger from obstructions or hazards of any kind.
The team at Accident Advice Helpline has assisted people who have found themselves in a situation like this in the past. We have been able to win compensation where it is deserved after an individual has been injured in some way while at a tennis match.
