In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in the ABQ Pickleball Club Events, venues and any and all associated activities supported by the ABQ Pickleball Club (“the Event”), I, for myself, my heirs or assigns, hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the ABQ Pickleball Club as well as their officers, volunteers, employees and agents from liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injuries, accidents or illnesses (including death) and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in the ABQ Pickleball Club Events, venues and any and all associated activities supported by the ABQ pickleball Club.
