Howzat! The High Court, negligence and indoor cricket
White, Benjamin P. (2002) Howzat! The High Court, negligence and indoor cricket. Queensland Lawyer, 23, pp. 47-50.
This article examines the High Court case of Woods v Multi-Sport that considers the liability of an indoor cricket centre for an injury sustained by a player. It is a good example of how the issue of breach is dealt with in a sports law context and also shows how difficult it can be to determine when a sporting body will in breach of a duty of care owed to its participants.
