RJR sources have revealed that Saturday's Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Table Tennis Jamaica (TTJ) is expected to go ahead as planned despite the request for a postponement by 12 clubs and affiliates. On Wednesday RJR Sports obtained a letter dated February 4, in which the clubs, through their attorney, wrote to TTJ president Godfrey Lothian requesting the postponement of the AGM, citing serious concerns regarding the conduct and procedure utilized to achieve the amendments to the constitution on January 28.
At the centre of the issue is the number of clubs and affiliates that were on the books of the association. That number grew from 36 on January 21 when RJR Sports obtained a copy, to 105 on January 28 at the special meeting.
The question was raised of whether all clubs were properly registered based on section seven sub-section (a) of the then constitution which speaks about clubs and affiliates submitting a constitution since failure to do so will render the application ineligible for consideration.
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.
