“There has been much speculation as to the recent events at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club (CITC). I would like to clarify that Rob Seward, the Head Pro at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club was arrested for financial improprieties pertaining to the club and this is being fully investigated by the RCIPS Financial Crime Unit. I understand that Mr. Seward is cooperating with the police. The club continues to run as normal.”
