Vincent Wevers wants to force through the court that he can still be in Tokyo next month to accompany his daughters Sanne and Lieke Wevers, among others.
The gymnastics association decided in April that a number of coaches are not allowed to go to the Olympics because they are being investigated for possible transgressive behavior.
The summary proceedings that Vincent Wevers has filed against gymnastics association KNGU were filed last Monday in Zutphen.
The judge will rule on Monday 21 June at the latest, and possibly earlier.
The opening ceremony of the Games is already on July 23.
The news about the summary proceedings only came out on Thursday at a press moment of the KNGU.
"When we made the decision not to have a number of coaches travel to Tokyo, we clearly indicated that we made that decision to ensure as much peace as possible around the team," said technical director Mark Meijer.
"That's why we didn't publicize it."
Meijer had to defend himself in court together with general manager of the KNGU Marieke van der Plas.
Just like their father, Sanne and Lieke Wevers were also involved in summary proceedings.
"It is not up to me to say whether they have spoken," said Meijer.
"I will not go into the content, the judge has to make a decision."
Vincent Wevers has been the coach of his daughters for decades.
After several ex-gymnasts said a year ago that they were mistreated and humiliated by Wevers in their youth, the coach was suspended and the Institute for Sports Law (ISR) started an investigation into him.
Wevers was allowed to coach again from the ISR after a month and is currently still guiding his daughters in their preparation for Tokyo. However, Meijer decided two months ago that Wevers is not allowed to come to Japan. With Bram van Bokhoven, José van der Veen and the American top coach Aimee Boorman, a new coaching staff for the Olympic selection was formed.
