    Remember this article?

    Netball Towers is in meltdown, rumour has it that we’ve lost the case in its entirety – in other words, every aspect of the claim has been upheld by the arbitration panel.

    Our Chief Exec “Calamity” Adams is walking around the building as if she’s on spice….

    What next I wonder…..heads will roll.

    Wow. But why if there was a concern based on an allegation did they not contact the police instead of hiring private detectives?

    That’s a really good question. I can only assume that Adams wanted to control the evidence gathered by the Private detectives and use it for her own purposes. If the police didn’t find anything, then Adams wouldn’t have been able to take matters forward the way that she did.

    My understanding is that the arbitrator decision is final and binding on both all parties. So whatever the details, we’ll find out soon enough. But one thing is for sure, EN has lost this case, which can only mean the person who brought the case won!

    Holy Cow!  Surely the biggest question has to be how much this is going to cost EN, and where are they going to get the money from?  Because I’m pretty sure that members won’t want their subscriptions going to fund a payout to the wronged party, as well as some hefty legal fees….

     

    And where does it leave the umpires Ms Adams has also been waging a vendetta against?

     

    Sounds like heads might roll soon….. 😆

    The latest is that all staff at Netball Towers have been told not to discuss the case or it’s decision. If anyone leaks the information, it’s a disciplinary!

    Oops  :shok:

    Here’s a link to the panel rules that apply to the arbitration panel.

    It’s also nothing more than a coincidence of course that during the case, EN was making the following changes:

    1)Admitted they never had a Register of DBS approved members, 

    2).Had to amend safeguard policy & Procedure, 

    3)Currently amending database and confidentially policies.

    The Brentwood NC Chair has had ALL suspensions lifted against him AND awarded costs!

    Latest news is that Adams is trying to get the ruling declared confidential so the findings can’t be shared publicly.

    Now why would she want to do this?

    The ruling runs to 70 pages.

    It is damning in almost every aspect of EN’s governance and behaviour. The CEO comes in for particular criticism and is described as…and I quote; “an unreliable witness”

    How much more of this shameful behaviour does the membership have to take – clear victimisation of Life members and club principals, a damning judgement by an independent tribunal, six-figure costs and yet still, Adams is allowed to remain in her post.
