3 billion gate for ‘Yuksa Court’ that has been thrown away by the President of the Tennis Association for 9 years

The Korea Tennis Association held a by-election for the 28th president on the 23rd. From the left, Election Management Committee Chairman Jae-moo Jae, Chairman Joo Won-hong, and former acting Chairman Son Young-ja.

Media Will advisor Joo Won-hong (68) has once again become the head of the Korea Tennis Association.

The Tennis Association announced on the 23rd, “As a result of the by-election for the 28th president held at the tennis court at Olympic Park in Songpa-gu, Seoul, Advisor Joo was elected with 79 votes (47.6%) out of a total of 166 votes.”

As a result, Advisor Joo becomes the second president of the Tennis Association, following his time as the 26th president from 2013 to 2016.

New Chairman Joo will begin his 29th term when the 28th executive term ends at the end of this year and lead the Tennis Association until 2028.

Up to this point, it is no different from any other sports organization presidential election article.

However, there is a difference in that it is not yet known whether the Korea Sports Council will recognize the results of this election.

The Korea Sports Council sent official letters to the Tennis Association twice during this election period requesting the suspension of the election. The Sports Council claimed that ‘resuming the presidential election without consulting with the Sports Council before the grace period for designating a management organization has even expired is a violation of the member sport organization regulations, etc.’

To understand this situation, we need to go back to 2016, when Chairman Joo lost the 27th presidential election.

More precisely, we need to go back to 2015, when the tennis courts at the Korea Military Academy were remodeled.

Chairman Joo, then-Superintendent of the Korea Military Academy Yang Jong-soo, and then-Mayor of Guri Park Young-soon agreed to remodel the courts at the academy and open them to tennis enthusiasts. They thought it would be a 스포츠 토토사이트

waste to open the 30-court (14 clay courts, 16 hard courts) courts at the academy in Galmae-dong, Guri-si, Gyeonggi-do, to cadets only, as tennis enthusiasts were always looking for courts. The problem was that the Tennis Association did not have the budget to carry out this project. Accordingly, Chairman Joo borrowed 3 billion won from Mediawill, run by his younger brother Joo Won-seok, and decided to transfer the operating rights of the courts on a long-term basis. The courts at the academy were remodeled to include indoor courts, and a completion ceremony was held on December 9, 2015. At least up to this point, there was no major problem from the perspective of the Tennis Association. However, when the head of the association failed to be reappointed, turmoil began to arise.

The person who defeated Chairman Joo and became the head of the Tennis Association was former Chairman Kwak Yong-un (64).

Former Chairman Kwak said that giving Mediawill the right to operate the Korea Military Academy court could be considered a breach of trust, and changed the policy to allow the Tennis Association to operate the court directly.

In response, Media Will filed a lawsuit, saying that the Tennis Association would have to repay 3 billion won for remodeling costs plus interest.

After a series of legal battles and ‘out-of-court battles’ surrounding this situation throughout former Chairman Kwak’s term, the court ruled in favor of Media Will, saying that the Tennis Association should pay 6 billion won.

As a result, the Tennis Association virtually went bankrupt and became a ‘plant association’ that could not use the national team sponsorship money as it wished.

Former Chairman Kwak was eventually defeated in the 28th presidential election and had to leave the Tennis Association, receiving only the title “the person who was called ‘a tennis novice’ by Ahn Min-seok during the 2018 National Assembly audit.”

The person who defeated former Chairman Kwak and Chairman Joo and was elected as Chairman was Jeonbuk Tennis Association President Jeong Hee-gyun (57), the younger brother of then-National Assembly Speaker Jeong Sye-kyun.

Former Chairman Jeong reached an agreement with Media Will to repay the remaining interest of 1.55 billion won over three years and to finalize the principal by transferring the right to operate the Korea Military Academy Court.

The problem did not end here.

Media Will requested the Tennis Association to produce an investigation report pointing out the ‘tyranny’ of former Chairman Kwak’s regime and post it on its Internet homepage, and former Chairman Jeong accepted it.

However, the Tennis Association did not keep this promise.

There was another obstacle.

The contract signed between the Tennis Association and the Korea National University of Korea when deciding to remodel the National Academy of Sciences court included the clause that “any rights and obligations (claims, liabilities, etc.) related to this contract cannot be transferred or used as collateral.”

Accordingly, handing over the right to operate the court for the purpose of repaying debt was a violation of contract.

In the end, the contract signed between the Tennis Association and Media Will became nothing more than a piece of paper.

In other words, as time passes, the debt that the association must repay gradually accumulates.

Meanwhile, suspicions arose that former Chairman Chung had used some of the sponsorship money received in the name of the Tennis Association and advertising revenue from international competitions for purposes other than those intended.

Former Chairman Chung eventually resigned voluntarily on September 6th of last year. 성인웹툰
