Ninja options running dry for Global Gaming following Swedish Supreme Court rejection

first_img Spelinspektionen rejects Ninja Casino domain transfer February 12, 2020 Global Gaming granted licence review permit following Swedish appeal January 9, 2020 Related Articles Ninja collapse sees Global Gaming move to redefine business November 21, 2019 Share Submit StumbleUpon Share Stockholm-listed Global Gaming AB has suffered a further setback in reviving its flagship Ninja Casino brand, as it confirms that its ‘injunctive relief appeal’ has been rejected by Sweden’s Supreme Administrative Court.The update sees Global Gaming governance overruled for the third time by Swedish administrative courts, in relation to challenging Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen’s indefinite suspension of Malta subsidiary SafeEnt the operating company of Ninja Casino.Global Gaming’s woes began on 17 June, as Spelinspektionen revoked SafeEnt’s operator licenses, having deemed its subsidiary to have been in serious breach of Swedish gambling’s AML Code and failure to meet customer care-of-duty requirements.Spelinspektionen’s suspension would be immediately challenged by Global Gaming governance, stating that SafeEnt had operated within the remit of Sweden’s new Gaming Law.Nevertheless, a summer of legal battles would see Global Gaming appeals rejected three times by Swedish courts, with its latest rebuff coming from the final court of administrative judgement for Swedish legal cases.In its update, Global Gaming noted that the Supreme Administrative Court rejected the appeal without providing any further explanation, and will turn its full attention to the ongoing judicial review.Tobias Fagerlund, CEO of Global Gaming, explained: “Although we were aware that the chances of being granted injunctive relief were limited, we are, of course, disappointed to see our appeal rejected again. Our focus is now on the judicial review of the Swedish Gambling Authority’s decision that is currently taking place.“We maintain that the decision is fundamentally wrong and disproportionate, and will show it during the process that is currently underway in the Administrative Court.”last_img read more

England win Girls’ Home Internationals

first_img4 Aug 2012 England win Girls’ Home Internationals England won the Girls’ Home International championship at Radyr, Wales, in a nail-biting, touch and go finish. The team came from behind to beat the hosts, Wales, 5-4 on the final day and secure the Stroyan Cup for the fifth year in a row. England finished with 2½ pt, Ireland 2pt (runners-up for the second year in a row), Wales 1pt and Scotland half a point. It fell to the last three players on the course to win their matches for England  – and they did it. Captain Chris Pascall said: “It was touch and go and it all came down to the last three matches. “It was tough – and it was a tough week. The standard gets better all the time and the girls have played extremely well.” England held a slender lead in the championship at the start of the final day, having previously beaten Scotland and halved with Ireland. The team knew that a win against Wales would secure the trophy. But Wales, too, had all to play for and came out, all guns blazing, to win the morning foursomes.  Only Elizabeth Mallett and Meghan MacLaren were able to secure their point for England, winning one up. As the singles got under Georgia Hall continued her excellent form to win her match 5/3 and level the scoreboard. Georgia, who is sixth in the women’s world amateur rankings, won five out of six points this week. But, when Elizabeth Mallett and Brogan Townend lost their matches, Wales needed just one more point for victory. England, however, held all the aces. They led in the three games still to finish – and duly won them all. Amber Ratcliffe beat Jessica Evans 4/3 after being three up at the turn, Gabriella Cowley beat Megan Lockett 3/1 after being all square at the turn, and Meghan MacLaren delivered the title-winning fifth point for England by beating Nia Greville 2/1, again after it was all square at the turn. England v Wales Foursomes Elizabeth Mallett (Sutton Coldfield Ladies’) & Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough) beat Georgia Lewis & Nia Greville  5&4 Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer) & Shelby Smart (Knowle) lost to Megan Lockett & Jess Evans 1 down Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) & Gabriella Cowley (West Essex) lost to Chloe Williams & Ella Griffiths 3&2 Singles Hall beat Lewis 5&3 Mallett lost to Williams 2&1 Brogan Townend (Pleasington) lost to Griffiths 1 4&3 Cowley beat Megan Lockett 3&1 MacLaren beat Greville 2 &1 Ratcliffe beat Evans 4&3 In the day’s other match Ireland beat Scotland 5-4.   England’s girls beat Scotland 08 August 2012  Defending champions England beat Scotland 5½-3½ to take a slender lead after the second day of the Girls’ Home Internationals at Radyr. Tomorrow they play the hosts, Wales, knowing that a win will guarantee a successful defence of their title. England have 1½ points from two matches, Wales and Ireland have a point apiece, while Scotland has a half point. Today’s victory was hard fought. After England won all three morning foursomes the Scots came out with great determination in the singles. England captain Chris Pascall said: “They knew they had to win five matches and they just came at us. It’s been hard work and there was a lot of good golf from both sides.” But, despite the Scots attack, England managed to take 2½ points from the singles. Georgia Hall and Gabriella Cowley both won their singles games, while Shelby Smart managed a half, despite her opponent holing 15-footers on the 15th, 16th and 17th holes. Earlier, in the foursomes, Shelby had fired accurate shots into the three short holes on the back nine, each time finishing within 10ft – and her partner Amber Ratcliffe rolled in the putts each time. “They won all three par threes with twos,” said Chris. Meanwhile Georgia and Gabriella, who were paired in the morning, withstood a birdie blitz which pegged them back from five up after 10 to just one up after 14. They stopped the slide by halving the 15th and then managed their own winning birdie on 16 to move to two up, before closing out the match on the 17th. Elizabeth Mallett and Brogan Townend completed England’s clean sweep in the foursomes. They were never behind in their match, were three-up after eight holes and although the Scots won the ninth they were never able to improve on that position. England results v Scotland Foursomes Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) & Gabriella Cowley (West Essex)  beat Rachel Walker & Lauren Whyte 2&1 Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer) & Shelby Smart (Knowle) beat Ailsa Summers & Clara Young 4&2 Elizabeth Mallett (Sutton Coldfield Ladies’) & Brogan Townend (Pleasington) beat Lesley Atkins & Jessica Meek 2&1 Singles Hall beat Whyte 5&4 Mallett lost to Summers 4&2 Cowley beat Atkins 4&2 Olivia Winning (Rotherham) lost to Meek 4&3 Smart halved with Young Amber Ratcliffe lost to Walker 1 down In the day’s other match Ireland and Wales halved.   England’s girls halve with Ireland 07 August 2012 England halved with Ireland on the first day of the Girls’ Home Internationals at Radyr, Wales – thanks to the strong nerve of Meghan MacLaren. She was in the last singles match on the course and the day’s result depended upon the outcome.  Meghan, 18, had to win her game to secure the half for the team – and she duly delivered with a 2/1 victory. She’d never been behind during the match and had led for most of the way, getting to 2up with three to play. Her opponent won the 16th to reduce the deficit to one, but Meghan found the perfect answer when she won the 17th and closed out the match. Earlier England had won two of the three morning foursomes to take the advantage at the halfway stages. Georgia Hall, who is sixth in the women’s world amateur rankings, kept the momentum going when she won her singles point and Elizabeth Mallett added another half point to the tally. But then the Irish surged, winning the next three games to draw level. England are the defending champions in the tournament and are aiming to win the Stroyan Cup for the fifth successive year. In the day’s other match Wales and Scotland also halved. Now, England play Scotland while Wales take on Ireland. England results v Ireland Foursomes Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) & Gabriella Cowley (West Essex) beat Jean O’Driscoll & Jessica Ross 2&1 Elizabeth Mallet (Sutton Coldfield Ladies’) & Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough) beat Jessica Carty & Chloe Ryan 5&4 Olivia Winning (Rotherham) & Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer) lost to Olivia Mehaffey & Ariana Coyle Diez 3&1 Singles Hall beat O’Driscoll 3/2 Mallett halved with Carty Brogan Townend (Pleasington) lost to Ross 2 down Shelby Smart (Knowle) lost to Coyle Diez 2/1 Cowley lost to Mehaffey 4/3 MacLaren beat Ryan 2/1   England girls bid for fifth title in a row 06 August 2012 England will bid for their fifth successive victory when the Girls’ Home Internationals get underway tomorrow at Radyr Golf Club, near Cardiff. However, it would not be a record sequence because England was the top side in the tournament for six years in succession from 2000 to 2005. Scotland broke the stranglehold to win the title in 2006 and 2007.   Wales has not won the Stroyan Cup since 1999 and Ireland has never won the tournament.   England, captained again by Chris Pascall, have four new caps in their eight-strong line-up. They are Gabriella Cowley (West Essex), third in the recent R&A Junior Open at Fairhaven, Junior Vagliano Trophy player Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer), Shelby Smart (Knowle) and Olivia Winning (Rotherham). The second Junior Vagliano Trophy player in the England line-up is Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) who has climbed into the top 10 of the women’s world amateur rankings on the back of an excellent series of tournament performances. She was runner-up in the English women’s amateur in May and reached the semi-finals of the Ladies’ British Open Amateur Championship at Carnoustie in June. The team is completed by three other established girl internationals: Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough), Elizabeth Mallett (Sutton Coldfield Ladies’) and Brogan Townend (Pleasington).   Ireland finished runners-up in the Girls Home Internationals at Gullane last year when they beat Scotland and Wales but lost to England in the title decider. Ireland, captained by Niamh Kitching, has three new girl caps in its team – Mary Doyle (The Heath), Jessica Ross (Donaghadee) and Niamh Ward (Lurgan). Chloe Ryan (Castleroy) played for Ireland in last year’s Women’s Home Internationals as well as the Under-18s’ event. Scotland, captained by Elaine Cuthill, has three new caps in its line-up – Nicola Callander (Mill Green), 16-year-old winner of the recent Scottish Under-21 stroke play championship, Jessica Meek (Carnoustie Ladies’) and Eilidh Watson (Muckhart) who reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Ladies’ Amateur Championship in May. Clara Young (North Berwick) is another Junior Vaglian Trophy player.   Wales, captained by Kay Bradbury, has three new caps:  Ella Griffiths (The Grove), Megan Lockett (Huddersfield) and Lottie Turner (Aberdovey). Lottie is the daughter of the late Sue Turner, one of the most successful team captains in Welsh golf history who died last year before she could share in this year’s Curtis Cup triumph at Nairn. Sue had been named as GB and I team manager. The fourth Junior Vagliano Trophy team player in the tournament is Chloe Williams (Wrexham).   THE PROGRAMME   Tuesday, August 7 Wales v Scotland, Ireland v England.   Wednesday, August 8 England v Scotland, Ireland v Wales   Thursday, August 9 Scotland v Ireland, Wales v England.   THE TEAMS   ENGLAND                Chris Pascall, Captain              Gabriella Cowley, West Essex Georgia Hall, Remedy Oak Meghan MacLaren, Wellingborough Elizabeth Mallett, Sutton Coldfield Ladies’ Amber Ratcliffe, Royal Cromer Shelby Smart, Knowle Brogan Townend, Pleasington Olivia Winning, Rotherham                  IRELAND                Niamh Kitching, Captain                  Jessica Carty, Holywood Ariana Coyle Diez, Elm Park Mary Doyle, The Heath Olivia Mehaffey, Royal County Down Ladies’ Jean O’Driscoll, Muskerry Jessica Ross, Donaghadee Chloe Ryan, Castletroy Niamh Ward, Lurgan                  SCOTLAND                Elaine Cuthill, Captain                  Lesley Atkins, Gullane Ladies’ Nicola Callander, Mill Green Jessica Meek, Carnoustie Ladies’ Ailsa Summers, Carnoustie Ladies’ Rachel Walker, Dumfries and County Eilidh Watson, Muckhart Lauren Whyte, St Regulus Clara Young, North Berwick                  WALES                Kay Bradbury, Captain                  Jess Evans, Newport Nia Greville, Ashburnham Ella Griffiths, The Grove Georgia Lewis, Llanishen Megan Lockett, Huddersfield Lottie Turner, Aberdovey Bethan Williams, Holyhead Chloe Williams, Wrexham Image: Back row from left – Meghan Maclaren, Amber Ratcliffe, Georgia Hall, Gabriella Cowley, Brogan Townend, Olivia Winning.

Golf coaches turn royal spotlight on women’s sport

first_img12 Mar 2015 Golf coaches turn royal spotlight on women’s sport England Golf’s Lysa Jones and Sarah Bennett helped to turn the spotlight on sporting opportunities for women when they met the Princess Royal at the launch of the new campaign, This Girl Can Coach.It is being run by sports coach UK and aims to boost the number of women in coaching and, in turn, increase the number of women taking part in sport.Lysa and Sarah are both PGA professionals who coach England Golf squads and were among a group of elite women coaches from a range of sports who met the Princess.“It was brilliant, she really took time with us,” said Lysa, who is based at The Oaks in Yorkshire. Sarah, from Three Rivers in Essex, added: “It’s great to have the support of HRH who was extremely knowledgeable and very interested in our roles.”England Golf has an open recruitment policy for its squad coaches and both women took advantage of this opportunity to further their careers and showcase their skills. Lysa coaches the East Midland U16 boys’ squad and Sarah is head coach to the U18 East squad.Both are also committed to encouraging other women to consider coaching careers. “We would be happy to help in any way to raise the profile,” said Lysa.“It’s all about giving people a chance,” added Sarah. “Having worked through the amateur system right to top level tournament golf I know I can really help up our up-and-coming male and female coaches and new players.”They urge other women to have confidence in their abilities. “I sometimes think we perceive barriers,” said Sarah. “Taking that little step forward, which is very often out of your comfort zone, can be a career changing move. This is exactly what happened when I applied for the England Golf coaching role.Lysa added: “This isn’t about men and women, it’s about being recognised as a coach and for your skills. I’ve always been very well supported, but I’ve also been very determined about what I want to do as a player and a coach.”The Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) is working to increase the number of women golf coaches, in both the professional and volunteer workforce. Initiatives include working with England Golf to attract more female volunteer coaches and forging links with the Ladies European Tour to create a flexible way into coaching for touring professionals approaching the end of their playing careers.Both Sarah and Lysa were supported by England Golf and the PGA to take part in a  Women in High Performance programme, run by sports coach UK. They joined elite coaches from cricket, athletics and hockey in a series of sessions which helped them to develop their self-awareness and confidence and to build their strengths and their networks.The Princess Royal attended the final session, together with representatives of sport governing bodies, and listened to a discussion about applying the benefits of the programme more widely.The coachesSarah Bennett of Three Rivers Golf & Country Club, EssexSarah played on the Ladies European Tour after a successful amateur career. She competed in worldwide events for 20 years before a neurological condition ended her playing days.

Sarah is heavily involved coaching injured service personnel and is holding her second Golf Fore Recovery event in May. Sarah was a member of the LET committee and now sits on the WPGA committee. She is passionate about growing and developing golf at all levels“When my playing days were cut short it was difficult to accept, but I was determined to recover. I really enjoy the interaction between my clients and player support is an integral part of my coaching. It is lovely to receive that text or e mail from a happy golfer,” she said.Lysa Jones of The Oaks Golf Club, YorkshireAs an amateur, Lysa was the Worcestershire county champion and the winner of the Abraham Trophy, which is awarded to England’s most improved girl golfer. She completed her training and became a PGA professional in 1999 and is widely known for her skill, enthusiasm and passion for coaching.
