Every competitor in a sport owes a duty to the others to take reasonable care1 to avoid causing injury in all of the prevailing circumstances2.The threshold is high and an error of judgment or momentary lapse of skill is not enough to establish breach of duty3. Breach of the rules, conventions or customs of the sport is relevant but must be considered in the prevailing circumstances and does not necessarily establish a breach of duty
