Meeting on Gardner expulsion postponed

National tennis player, Kevin Gardner will have to wait a few more weeks before the verdict on whether he will be barred from the Antigua and Barbuda Tennis Association (ABTA).
In a letter dated September 6, 2018, the association stated that the Extraordinary General Meeting which was scheduled for the first of this month had to be postponed due to ‘scheduling conflicts.’
There was no clear date on when the meeting would commence but that a seven-day notice would be given to Gardner and he could present his case in person or in writing.
Gardner had received a letter in July notifying him to withdraw in writing from the ABTA, and that failure to comply would result in the association reviewing his membership at an Extraordinary General Meeting with the possibility of expulsion.
Withdrawing himself as a member of the association would mean that Gardner would no longer be able to play at tournaments under the Antigua and Barbuda flag and would no longer be eligible for national selection.
The overseas-based athlete did not withdraw from the ABTA.
This matter stems from the latest Davis Cup incident where Gardner and President of the association, Cordell Williams Sr., got into a dispute after it was discovered that during a team meeting in Costa Rica, Gardner recorded the meeting without the consent of the other individuals present.
Williams Sr. was the captain of the team.
