Condon v Basi: Case Analysis
The court found that the standard of care varies dependent on the expertise level of the player in question. Therefore, a higher standard of care will be expected of a player who plays at a higher level then a player who plays in a local league.
The Court also found that even if a player can be found to have accepted the risks of injury which are part of any sport, a player cannot be held to have accepted the risks of an injury that occurs beyond the rules of the game.
