CHENNAI: A contempt petition was filed against the president and secretary of Tamil Nadu Roller Skating Association for proceeding with the  24th statewide championship from October 25 to October 29 against the order of Madras High Court.

Earlier, Justice V Ramasubramanian had restrained the office bearers from conducting the championship in any manner, following a petition by the Tamil Nadu Skaters’ Parents’ Association to restrain the body and all its affiliated district units from conducting any events of roller skating in the state without registering as per the provisions of Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act.

It was further alleged that the skating association is also not listed in the recognised sports list under the Tamil Nadu Olympic Association and Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu.

In the last academic year, the Anna University refused to accept the certificates issued by the association.

They claimed that if participation in the event is not recognised by any of the sports authorities or educational institutions, due weightage of marks will not be given to the participants by an institution.

As the Tamil Nadu Roller Skating Association is proceeding to conduct the events despite the courts order, the parents’ association approached the High Court on Monday.

Justice V Ramasubramanian before whom the petition came up for hearing adjourned the case to November 3.
