PENARTH Windsor Lawn Tennis Club hosted a memorial tournament in honour of a friend of the club over the Bank Holiday weekend

More than 40 members attended the day, remembering Martin Rogers and raising £565 for Marie Curie.

A spokesman for the club said: "Martin, who was fondly described by his wife Jenny as slightly eccentric, was a fantastic member for over 30 years and made great contributions to the upkeep of the old shale and grass courts.

"Martin was a brilliant inventor and once used that talent to create a sprinkler system made out of an old washing machine. On court he had a fierce forehand and played many team matches over the years."

Liz James hosted the tournament which was won by Dan James and Elin Rowlands, with the wooden spoon prizes going to Alistair Smith and Martin's wife Jenny.

Players enjoyed some wonderful cakes, a raffle and a drink on a memorable day to celebrate Martin Rogers’ lifelong contributions to the club.
