There is more controversy in local table tennis as ten clubs are seeking an injunction to stop this weekend's Annual General Meeting (AGM), which serves as a voting election. RJR Sports has obtained a letter dated February 4, in which the clubs, through their attorney, have written to Table Tennis Jamaica president Godfrey Lothian requesting the postponement of Saturday's AGM.
The letter cites serious concerns that the clubs have over a special general meeting which was held on January 28 in which various aspects of the constitution were changed. They say they are yet to get a suitable response from Lothian's lawyers.
Among the changes made were a name change for the association from the Jamaica Table Tennis Association to Table Tennis Jamaica as well as term limits for presidents which will see future bosses able to serve up to 3 four year terms. RJR Sports also understands that the clubs are willing to stage a protest at the AGM if it is allowed to go ahead this Saturday.
