Abstract

A duty of care exists between various levels of sport, with governing bodies owing a duty of care to competitors. Cricket's ball tampering incident in Cape Town raised issues as to the culture and governance of cricket in Australia. One of the comments in a subsequent report was that a duty of care may be owed in regard to providing a balance between winning and creating a safe environment. Sport governing bodies have had to face legal challenges regarding potential breaches of a duty of care in regard to spinal injuries and more recently in regard to the long term effects of concussion. It is suggested that sport governing bodies have fulfilled their duty of are in regard to these matters.
