Rob Seward, who has served as manager of the Cayman Islands Tennis Club for several years, was arrested Friday, 19 January in connection with monies taken from accounts belonging to the club.

“It is with great regret that I have to inform you on behalf of my fellow Officers and Directors, and as President of the CI Tennis Club, that our long-serving Manager, Mr. Rob Seward, was arrested yesterday pending further police investigations into matters involving the Club,” CITC President Steve Surrey stated in an email to members.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) confirmed the arrest and said this was for suspicion of Fraud, Theft, and Obtaining Property by Deception. Seward, 46, was released on bail.

Surrey told members there was very little information that he could divulge while police investigations continue.

“Rest assured that the CI Tennis Club Officers, Directors and Coaching staff are committed to keeping the Club running ‘business as usual’.  In the meantime, I ask for your patience as we adjust our administrative procedures given Rob’s absence.  The Club office has been locked down and will remain off limits until further notice,” the CITC president said.

However, he said it was “highly likely” that the office will be reopened Wednesday. An emergency Board meeting has been called where the directors and officers of the club “will discuss the matters in hand in greater detail and plan our course of action going forward”.
